Americans Trade Filbrandt to Kootenay

Kennewick, WA – Tri-City Americans Governor/General Manager Bob Tory announced today that the team has traded 18-year-old rearguard Clint Filbrandt to the Kootenay Ice in exchange for a 5th round pick in the 2015 Bantam Draft.

Filbrandt, a 5’11 175-pound defenseman from Calgary, Alberta, was originally drafted by Tri-City in the 10th round (217th overall) of the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft.  Filbrandt just wrapped up his rookie WHL season, appearing in 31 games and collecting a goal and two points along with 17 penalty minutes and a plus-2 rating.  Filbrandt scored his first WHL goal in just his second WHL game back on Oct. 14 at Moose Jaw.  Prior to joining Tri-City, Filbrandt spent the 2011-12 season with the Calgary Northstars AAA Midget club, playing in 33 games and totaling four goals and 13 points.

“With an abundance of defenseman signed for the upcoming season, I wanted to give Clint an opportunity to continue to play in the WHL,” explained Tory.  “We would like to thank (Clint) for his contributions to our club and wish him nothing but the best.”

Tri-City Americans season tickets are now available for the 2013-14 season.  Season ticket plans can be purchased by using several, convenient monthly payment schedules.  Call 509.736.0606, visit or drop by the Americans offices’ at the bottom level of the Toyota Center for more information.
