The next time Brenden Kichton steps onto the ice in a Spokane jersey he will join seven other players who have played in 300 career games as a Chief. The captain, who has rewritten the Chiefs' record book for defensemen, will become the first blueliner in Spokane history to accomplish the feat.

Kichton and the Chiefs will take to the road for the next three games visiting Everett on Friday and Seattle on Saturday and Tuesday, January 8th.

Friday's game can be heard on 1510 KGA at 7:00 p.m. while Saturday's broadcast will begin on AM 790 KJRB at 6:30 p.m.

Kichton already is the Chiefs' all-time leading defenseman in goals scored, assists and points. Overall, his 172 assists are fourth all-time as a Chief, just 14 behind Mitch Wahl for third most in Spokane history.

Eventually, Kichton will be joined in the 300 club by Blake Gal, who has appeared in 290 career games heading into the weekend. Gal's games played total is currently ninth all-time. The two will become just the second set of teammates to have played in their 300th career game in the same season joining Mason Wallin and Tim Krymusa who did it in the 2003 season. Both Gal (second round) and Kichton (third round) were products of the 2007 WHL Bantam Draft.
