KENT, September 20, 2016 – Seattle Thunderbirds general manager Russ Farwell this morning announced the team has traded goalie Ryan Gilchrist to the Lethbridge Hurricanes for a conditional pick in the 2017 Bantam Draft.
“Ryan had a good camp this year but with the play of Carl Stankowski and the addition of Rylan Toth we wanted to give him a chance to play in the league,” said Farwell. “We wish him good luck as he moves on to Lethbridge.”
Gilchrist appeared in three preseason games this season and had 1-0-0-0 record with a .875 save percentage and a 3.51 goals against average.
Gilchrist was signed by the T-Birds to a Standard WHL Player Agreement on February 20, 2015.
The T-Birds open the 2016-17 season in Portland against the Winterhawks on Saturday, September 24, at 7:00pm.
