Tri-City Herald: Americans finally healing up from a season full of injuries

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

The Tri-City Americans were hit hard by injuries last season, losing forward Phil Tot for the season to a concussion after just 15 games, goalie Eric Comrie to a hip injury in January, myriad injuries limited forward Ryan Chynoweth to just 37 games, and forward Beau McCue suffered an ankle injury Jan. 13 and missed 15 games.

All told, the Americans lost the equivalent of almost 200 games to injuries during the regular season and playoffs. General manager Bob Tory brought in 13 different affiliate players to plug the holes, which will pay dividends in the future.

Rookie Parker Bowles will claim one of the lost games, but the Kelowna, British Columbia, native gutted out the last half of the season and the playoffs with a shoulder injury. He finished with 21 goals and 23 assists in 71 games.
