KENNEWICK, Wash. - Goalie Chet Pickard is coming back soon, we're just not sure when. The Western Conference goalie of the year has been practicing this week and will be a game-time decision Friday night when the Ams open the playoffs with a home game against Everett. The first team all-star is coming back from a mild concussion, so the Ams want to be sure he's alright. Pickard is happy that he's on the mend. "Kind of a rough time of the season for everything to happen the way it did," he said. "You can look at it in the way that I had some time off to rest and get ready for the playoffs. We're still looking at it day-by-day and we'll see how things go."
