Americans Announce 2013-14 Regular Season Schedule

KENNEWICK, WA – The Tri-City Americans, in conjunction with the Western Hockey League, announced today their regular season schedule for the upcoming 2013-14 season, their 26th season in the Mid-Columbia.

For a sixth consecutive season, the Americans will start the season at home, as Tri-City will host the arch rival Spokane Chiefs at the Toyota Center on Saturday, September 21.  It also marks the fourth straight season that the Americans will open a season with two consecutive home games, as they host the Prince George Cougars on Sunday, September 22.

Of the 26 weekend home games, Tri-City will play 13 on Friday, 10 on Saturday and 3 on Sunday.  Tri-City's schedule is also equally balanced this season, with 36 games both before and after the nine-day Winter Break, slated to run from December 18 through December 26.

In division play, the Americans will go head-to-head with the Spokane Chiefs 12 times (six home and six away), including 8 match-ups after the Winter Break. Tri-City will also play the Portland Winterhawks and Seattle Thunderbirds 10 times while facing off against the Everett Silvertips 8 times.  Tri-City will play their B.C. Division counterparts (Kamloops, Kelowna, Prince George, Vancouver and Victoria) four times each (two home, two away).

This year's schedule has Tri-City hosting all six East Division opponents (Brandon, Moose Jaw, Prince Albert, Regina, Saskatoon and Swift Current) throughout the season.  Meanwhile, the Americans' trip through the Central Division will be broken up into two trips, one at the beginning of November (Nov. 1 @ Medicine Hat, Nov. 2 @ Lethbridge and Nov. 3 @ Kootenay) and the other in late January (Jan. 29 @ Calgary, Jan. 31 @ Edmonton and Feb. 1 @ Red Deer).

Home Schedule Highlights:

  • 26 home games scheduled for Friday-Saturday-Sunday
