KENNEWICK — There are prominent names on the wall in the hallway outside the Tri-City Americans dressing room.
Kolzig, Barnes, Price, Langkow, Souray and Boucher to name a few.
Kruise Reddick may never attain the same success of the players who came before him, but his contributions to the franchise have led to special moments the others never achieved.
In the five years that Reddick has pulled on a Tri-City sweater, the Americans have won three U.S. Division banners, a Scotty Munro trophy and a Western Conference title. All were firsts for a franchise that turned out several NHL stars, but had earned little else.
“He is the heart and soul of our team,” said Tri-City general manager Bob Tory of Reddick’s contributions. “He brings a relentless work ethic that is contagious and I think he’s taught a lot of people how important each and every game is, and how important it is when you put on that jersey to give everything you have. When the day is done you can look in the mirror, be proud of that performance and have no regrets.”
