Ams All Decade Team

TC Americans

In celebration of the past ten years of hockey in the Mid-Columbia, the Tri-City Americans announce their All-Decade Team. Fans cast over 500 ballots last week to help us select the best Americans players from the past ten seasons. The top two goaltenders, 12 forwards, and six defensemen with the most votes were selected.

Over the past decade seven Americans players have been selected in the NHL draft. Of the 20 players named to the All-Decade Team, 13 were playing in pro leagues last season and four continued their hockey careers in U SPORTS upon graduating from the WHL. Recent Americans players who made the list include Beck Warm and Kyle Olson who have both signed AHL contracts.

Sasha Mutala is lone players from the current roster featured on the All-Decade Team. Also receiving notable acknowledgement from fans were Drew Owlsey (G), Tyler Schmidt (D), and Jake Bean (D) who each spent limited but impactful time with the Americans.
