Chetner returned to the Adanacs in 2014, but continued to compete at a university level for the Richmond University Spiders in the years following as he pursued a post-secondary education. Now back in close-to-home territory, he is making his mark with the Vancouver NLL team.

The Warriors face off against the Saskatchewan Rush on Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. in Vancouver.
