No fans have been allowed at games this season.

The Western Hockey League announced today changes to the schedule of games for the U.S. Division.

As a result of the continued suspension of team activities for the Tri-City Americans due to a positive test for COVID-19, the following two games have been postponed:

Tri-City Americans vs Everett Silvertips

Sunday, April 25
Spokane Chiefs vs Tri-City Americans

The WHL continues to work in consultation with the Washington State Department of Health regarding the matter concerning the Tri-City Americans. Pending determination of further test results, the WHL will provide further information.

The Tri-City Americans and WHL will not be providing comment or identifying individuals. The WHL will continue to provide regular updates on COVID-19 testing results.

Further updates to the Regular Season schedule of games in the U.S. Division will be provided at a later date.

UP NEXT: The Silvertips return to play on Thursday, 6:10 p.m. (KRKO/WHL Live) in the third meeting of the season against the Spokane Chiefs to start the team’s only stretch of three games in three days. Viewing packages remain on sale at Play-by-play “Voice of the Tips” Mike Benton will have pre-game coverage beginning 30 minutes before puck drop.

A total of 19 players have suited up in an Everett Silvertips jersey and advanced to play in the National Hockey League, since the Silvertips joined the WHL in 2003-04. Entering this season, the Silvertips have elevated 27 players to be selected by teams in the NHL Entry Draft, including eight over the previous three seasons. By the end of the 2019-20 season, all three Silvertips in the 20-year old category earned NHL entry level contracts: Bryce Kindopp (Anaheim), Wyatte Wylie (Philadelphia), and Jake Christiansen (Columbus). The Seattle Kraken, an expansion franchise scheduled to play 30 miles away from Everett at Climate Pledge Arena, will make their NHL debut in the 2021-22 season.
