Defenseman Brandon Carlo Will Join Team For Remainder of Season

Kennewick, WA- Tri-City Americans Governor/General Manager Bob Tory announced today that 16-year-old defenseman Brandon Carlo will join the team for the remainder of the season.

Carlo, a 6’4 180-pound defenseman from Colorado Springs, Colorado, has spent the 2012-13 season competing as a member of the Colorado Thunderbirds U-16 team. He has appeared in 41 games and is the top scoring defenseman on the team, collecting 10 goals, 47 points and 58 penalty minutes. Carlo, who was drafted in the 10th Round (214th overall) by Tri-City in the 2011 Bantam Draft, was playing his second season with the U-16 Thunderbirds alongside fellow Tri-City prospect, Riley Hillis. Carlo will be eligible for the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

Under the USA Hockey/Hockey Canada/CHL agreement, Carlo will be limited to six games played for the remainder of the season, including the 2013 WHL Playoffs. Carlo will wear #36 and join the Americans in Seattle on Tuesday.

In other news on Monday, 18-year-old forward Fraser Bulbuc has been recalled from the Sherwood Park Crusaders of the Alberta Junior Hockey League and will also join the team in Seattle on Tuesday. Bulbuc has appeared in four games for the Americans this season and recorded one point, his first WHL goal against the Edmonton Oil Kings on February 23.

Tri-City is entering the final week of the season and will take on the Seattle Thunderbirds on Tuesday, March 12 at the ShoWare Center.  It will be the final game of the season between the two teams before a critical home-and-home series with the Spokane Chiefs. The Americans will play their final home game of the 2012-13 regular season on Saturday, March 16 against the Spokane Chiefs at the Toyota Center at 7:05 p.m.  Tickets are available through all Ticketmaster outlets, including the Toyota Center box office, all Fred Meyer outlets or online at ticketmaster.com.
