In his hometown of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Jesse Mychan lives just 5 minutes from Credit Union Centre, the home of the Saskatoon Blades. Mychan will play there Wednesday with the Tri-City Americans, and he hopes to see plenty of Mychan jerseys in the stands.

“I’m definitely excited,” Mychan said Tuesday. “Today was stressful with the overage deadline, and now that I know I’ll be here the rest of the year, it’s a big weight off my shoulders. It will be nice to go home and see the family, play in front of them and have some fun.”

Saskatoon is the fourth stop in a six-game trip for the Americans through the East Division. The fun begins tonight with their first game against the Brandon Wheat Kings. Sunday, they play the Moose Jaw Warriors before getting a day off Monday.

The Americans then go to Prince Albert on Tuesday and to Saskatoon on Wednesday. Thursday is an off day before they play the Regina Pats on Friday.

The Americans finish their trip next Saturday at Swift Current before hopping back on the bus for a 754-mile trip home.
