Americans Acquire Everett’s Ryan Chynoweth

Chris Mast

Kennewick, WA – Tri-City Americans Governor/General Manager Bob Tory announced today that the team has acquired 17-year-old Ryan Chynoweth (pron. Shuh-Nowth) from the Everett Silvertips in exchange for a conditional 5th round pick in the 2014 Bantam Draft.

Chynoweth, a 6’1 175-pound forward from Cranbrook, British Columbia, was originally drafted by Everett in the 2nd Round (24th overall) in the 2010 Bantam Draft and made his WHL debut against Tri-City on January 1, 2011.  Last year, in his rookie season, Chynoweth appeared in 66 games, totaling 2 goals, 8 points and 40 penalty minutes.  He also appeared in all 4 of Everett’s first round playoff games against Tri-City, going without a point but collecting 2 penalty minutes and a plus-1 rating.

Ryan is the son of current Kootenay Ice Governor/President/General Manager, Jeff Chynoweth.

“Ryan is a quality kid who adds depth to our forward crop,” said Tory.  “I’ve known the Chynoweth family for a long time and we welcome the addition of Ryan to our roster.”

The Americans kick-off an 8-game road trip this week, as they make the long trek to Manitoba for a match-up with the Brandon Wheat Kings on Saturday, October 13.  Game time is 5:30 p.m. (PST) at Westman Place.  Fans can catch all the action live, via WHL Live, at the Americans’ home away from home, Kimo’s Sports Restaurant, in Richland.  The game will also air live on NewsTalk 870 AM, starting with the Sterling Bank Warm-up Show at 5:15 p.m. (PST).
