Chas Sharpe: Year in Review

Watch more Year in Review on Steelheads TV

Sophomore defenceman Chas Sharpe made his mark in the Steelheads lineup, achieving career-highs and a franchise record. 

A Sharpe Shooter 

After his rookie season, Chas Sharpe was ready to take his game to the next level in 2021-22. Making himself a key player on the Steelheads’ back-end, the Orillia native used his sharp shot to contribute to the team’s success.

The defenceman’s first point of the year came a month into the season, but it was worth the wait. On November 7, he put away two goals for a multi-point performance, giving him the First Star of the game and registering a career-high six shots on goal. When the Steelheads played 11 straight games without a regulation loss, Sharpe picked up four points to help the team on that record-breaking stretch.

In a game against the Oshawa Generals on March 4, Sharpe registered a goal and four assists to set the franchise record for most points in a single game by a defenceman. He shares the record with Kasper Larsen, who reached five points in the same game. 

Number 28 registered 28 points in all during the regular season, scoring six goals and 22 assists. With the third-most points of any Steelheads blueliner, Sharpe demolished his rookie numbers (1G, 3A). He ranked second among Steelheads defencemen in shots on goal (122), as well as game-winning goals (tied with Charlie Callaghan at two).

Playoff Performance

Sharpe made a splash in his first postseason. In Game 5 of the team’s first-round series against the Barrie Colts, he scored his first career playoff goal, which also happened to be the game-winner. His performance earned him another First Star of the Game nod. Having also recorded two assists in the playoffs, Sharpe ranked second in postseason points by Steelheads defenders.
