Americans Release 2017 Preseason Schedule

KENNEWICK, WA – Tri-City Americans Governor/General Manager Bob Tory, along with the Western Hockey League, released the team’s 2017 Preseason schedule. This year’s exhibition season is highlighted by two separate tournament appearances, as well as two additional preseason contests for a total of eight exhibition games leading into the franchise’s 30th season in the Mid-Columbia.

The Americans will start the preseason portion of their schedule by participating in the Everett Silvertips’ 14th annual Delta Hotels Preseason Classic, scheduled from Sept. 1-3, at Xfinity Arena.  It will be the franchise’s eleventh consecutive trip to the Silvertips’ tournament.  While there, Tri-City will match-up against U.S. Division rivals, the Everett Silvertips and Portland Winterhawks, as well as the B.C. Division’s Vancouver Giants.

Tri-City then returns home to host the 2017 Red Lion Hotels Preseason Tournament, scheduled for Sept. 7-9 at the Toyota Center in Kennewick.  The Tournament will feature two games on Thursday, as well as a three-game per day schedule on Friday and Saturday.

This year’s tournament will feature the host Americans, three U.S. Division rivals (Portland, Seattle and Spokane) as well as the Central Division’s Kootenay Ice and Red Deer Rebels.

The Americans will then wrap-up their preseason schedule with two exhibition games. The first game will feature a home game against the Kootenay Ice on Sept. 12th at the Toyota Center.
