Tri-City Herald: Ams stand pat on trade deadline

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

There were calls.

Incoming, not outgoing, on Bob Tory’s cell phone Thursday.

But in the end, there was a “thanks for calling,” as the Western Hockey League trade deadline came and went with the Tri-City Americans opting to keep their team intact.

“I had no desire to make any deals,” said Tory, the Americans’ general manager. “I wasn’t going to give up some of our younger players, which people were interested in. I wasn’t going to make our team weaker just to get draft picks.”

Tri-City, which has seven 17-year-olds on its roster who see significant ice time, has a good mix of veterans and younger players, in what could be called a rebuilding season after losing three players who had more than 100 points each last season.
