Americans Trade Moline to Hurricanes

KENNEWICK, WA – Tri-City Americans Governor/General Manager Bob Tory announced today that the team has traded 18-year-old forward Max Moline to the Lethbridge Hurricanes in exchange for a conditional 5th round pick in the 2013 Bantam Draft.

Moline, listed at 6’3 and 195 pounds, played his first full WHL season last year with Tri-City, appearing in 53 games and totaling four points and 42 penalty minutes.  The Lethbridge, Alberta-native was originally a 5th round (110th overall) pick by Tri-City in the 2008 Bantam Draft and spent the 2009-10 season with the Lethbridge Y’s Men Hurricanes, finishing 6th on the team in points (20) and earned an invite to Hockey Alberta’s U-17 camp.

“Max is a quality kid and this move will allow him to play closer to home in front of his family and friends,” explained Tory.  “We wish Max all the best in Lethbridge.”

The Tri-City Americans and Spokane Chiefs renew their rivalry with a home-and-home pre-season series next week, as the Chiefs and Americans meet in Spokane on today, September 15 at Eagles Ice-A-Rena before returning to the Toyota Center on Saturday, September 17.  Game time on Saturday in 7:05 p.m.  Seating is by general admission with tickets available for only $7!  Tickets can be purchased through all Ticketmaster outlets, including the Toyota Center box office, all Fred Meyer outlets, or online at ticketmaster.com.
