Chartier returns to Rockets

19-year-old centre back in Kelowna this week from the camp of the NHL's San Jose Sharks

Rourke Chartier is back with the WHL's Kelowna Rockets.

Rourke Chartier is heading back to Kelowna.

The Rockets veteran has been returned to the WHL champs from the San Jose Sharks after playing in Tuesday night’s NHL exhibition game against the Vancouver Canucks.

Chartier, 19, was a fifth round pick of the Sharks in 2014.

The native of Saskatoon will be going into his fourth season with the Rockets, coming off last year’s campaign that saw him score 48 goals in 58 games.

That leaves just Devante Stephens as a Rockets player expected to return to Kelowna but whom remains at an  NHL camp. Stephens is with the Buffalo Sabres.

The Rockets open the WHL regular season Friday night at home to the Kamloops Blazers.
