Ams Look To Get Healthy Against Portland Wednesday

Posted: Updated:

The Tri-City Americans are scraping to emerge from the dregs of the U.S. Division.

Despite solid play on the ice and an increasingly stingy defense. The Ams currently sit tied with Portland at the bottom of the division. Everyone looking up at the Seattle Thunderbirds; whose 16 points are good enough for first place alone. The players say despite a slow start, the fresh faces have been able to gel and it should start showing on the ice.

‘I think we're just kind of coming together. We don't have the Fes or the Shinny so it's more important that we come together as more of a whole. I mean it's always good to have those guys but we're a lot more level. A lot more depth this year so we just got to use that to our advantage,' said Americans' Center Marcus Messier.
