The T-Birds are currently six games into the preseason schedule and have a 4-2-0-0 record with our last preseason game on Saturday, September 15, in Everett.

At the Everett Preseason Tournament over Labor Day, we went 1-2-0-0 with a win over the Everett Silvertips and losses to the Vancouver Giants and the Spokane Chiefs.

We defeated the Chiefs 3-2 on Thursday at the Red Lion Hotels’ Preseason Classic in Kennewick. In our game Friday at the Red Lion Tournament, we beat the Kootenay Ice 3-1.

We defeated the Silvertips 4-3 in a nine-round shootout on Tuesday, September 11, at accesso ShoWare Center.

Reece Harsch, Jarret Tyszka and Liam Hughes have been invited to NHL Training Camps.

Our two Import Selections, Andrej Kukuca and Simon Kubicek, are contributing on the scoresheet this preseason. Kukuca has four goals and four assists in five games and Kubicek has two goals and two assists in four games. It’s going to be exciting to watch these two this season.

As the season gets closer the team will be announcing our team captain and alternate captains. Keep an eye on our website and social media platforms for that announcement.

We have signed seven of our nine 2018 Bantam Draft picks to Standard WHL Player Agreements and we signed two list players who had impressive showings at Training Camp.

We have a special T-Birds Flag Raising Ceremony at Kent City Hall with City of Kent Mayor Dana Ralph on Friday, September 21. We look forward to seeing as many T-Bird fans as possible at the flag raising. Make sure to wear your T-Birds gear to the Flag Raising.
