KENNEWICK, WA – Tri-City Americans General Manager Bob Tory announced today that the team has acquired 18-year-old Wil Kushniryk from the Kelowna Rockets for a conditional 5th round draft pick in the 2020 WHL Bantam Draft.

“Wil is a big guy with WHL experience. He skates very well and will add depth to our forward group. With the long-term injury to Paycen Bjorklund we felt it was necessary to add a veteran forward.

“We look forward to Wil joining our team in Prince George,” said Tory.
