TCH: Ams score high marks at midseason

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

Because it is at Christmastime that want is most keenly felt, and abundance rejoices.

Charles Dickens could well have been writting about the Tri-City Americans when he penned that line in A Christmas Carol.

The Americans don’t want for a lot, but an abundance of healthy players would be nice. Through the first 36 games of the season, Americans players have missed nearly 100 games because of injuries.

No one is to blame for this lackluster start.
