Americans Sign U.S. Prospect Brendan O’Reilly

Posted: Updated:

From Tri-City Americans

KENNEWICK, WA – Tri-City Americans Governor/General Manager Bob Tory announced today that the team has signed 16-year-old prospect Brendan O'Reilly to a standard WHL Players Contract.

O'Reilly, a 6'2 180-pound defenseman from Southlake, Texas, spent last season with the Victory Honda U-16 of the Tier 1 Elite League.  In 47 total games last year, O'Reilly collected 4 goals, 20 points and 25 penalty minutes.  An unlisted camp invite this year, O'Reilly, who was part of a team-record 14 U.S. prospects to attend this year's main camp, becomes the third U.S. player to join Tri-City since last Friday, following the team's acquisition of Kennewick-native Taylor Vickerman in a trade with Vancouver and signed Arizona-prospect Austyn Playfair on Monday.

"Brendan came into camp and impressed us with his skating and poise," explained Tory.  "We are happy that Brendan and his family have chosen the WHL and our hockey club to pursue his professional goals and aspirations."

The Tri-City Americans are in the midst of training camp, eagerly preparing for their first pre-season games this weekend.  The Americans will, once again, participate in the Everett Silvertips Pre-Season Classic, presented by Holiday Inn Downtown Everett starting Friday, August 30 and running through Sunday, September 1.  Tri-City will open the tournament on Friday against the Seattle Thunderbirds, followed by Saturday's contest against the Portland Winterhawks and Sunday's match-up vs. the Victoria Royals.  All game times are 11:30 AM at Comcast Arena in Everett.
