Americans Trade Troy Trombley to Saskatoon; Brodie Clowes Reassigned

John Allen

Kennewick, WA – Tri-City Americans Governor/General Manager Bob Tory announced today that the team has traded 19-year-old goaltender Troy Trombley to the Saskatoon Blades in exchange for a 5th round pick in the 2014 Bantam Draft.

Trombley, a 6’7 215-pound netminder from Sherwood Park, Alberta, joined Tri-City in January of last season, after starting goaltender Eric Comrie elected to have season-ending hip surgery.  Trombley, who was a part of the Melville Millionaires of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League before joining Tri-City, went on to play in 16 games, going 8-4-1-1 with a 2.92 goals against average, a 0.911 save percentage and 1 shutout.  Trombley appeared in 4 of Tri-City’s 5 playoff games, going 0-3-1 with a 4.74 goals against average and a 0.859 save percentage.  This off-season, the undrafted Trombley was invited to the Edmonton Oilers’ 2013 Prospect Camp.

“Troy came in last season and filled in admirably after Eric (Comrie) went down and we thank him for that,” explained Tory.  “He has earned this opportunity to go and compete for the starting spot in Saskatoon and we wish him all the best going forward.”

In an unrelated moved, Tory also announced that the club has reassigned 17-year-old defenseman Brodie Clowes to the Whitecourt Wolverines of the Alberta Junior Hockey League.  Clowes, a 6’2 180-pound defenseman from Calgary, Alberta, was originally acquired from the Victoria Royals last September.  However, an upper body injury limited Clowes to just 2 WHL games.

Following today’s moves, Tri-City’s roster now sits at 27 players, including 17 forwards, 8 defenseman and 2 goaltenders.

After a busy exhibition season, the Americans’ will kick-off the 2013-14 season this Saturday, September 21 against the Spokane Chiefs on Tri-Cities Rotary Opening Night, presented by SunWest Sportswear, KVEW-TV, 97.5 KOOL FM and Tú Decides newspaper.  Game time is 7:05 p.m. at the Toyota Center.  Tickets are on sale now through all Ticketmaster outlets, including the Toyota Center box office, all Fred Meyer locations or online at ticketmaster.com
