Spokane, Wash. — The Spokane Chiefs will host the Tri-City Americans in their fourth exhibition game of the pre-season at Spokane Arena Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. It’s the second of three pre-season meetings between the two teams before the regular-season opener featuring the same match-up on October 2.

The Chiefs came out on top in Sunday’s game against the Ams, with three goals from three different skaters (Cordel Larson, Copeland Fricker and Reed Jacobson) locking in the 3-2 victory. The Chiefs outshot the Americans, 30-24.

In last year’s abbreviated season, Spokane went 2-1-2-0 against Tri-City, and 8-1-1-0 in the 2019-20 season. The Chiefs will face the Americans two more times prior to the start of the regular season. 

The Spokane Chiefs are a member of the U.S. Division of the Western Hockey League, the world’s finest development league for junior hockey players. Since 1985 the Chiefs have been a pillar in the Spokane community, offering family-friendly entertainment and a winning tradition which includes: two Memorial Cup Championships in 1991 & 2008, two WHL Championships in 1991 & 2008 and four Western Conference Championships in 1991, 1996, 2000 & 2008. Over 60 alumni have gone on to play in the National Hockey League.

The Chiefs’ 2021-22 regular season will begin on Saturday, October 2 as they host the Tri-City Americans at Spokane Arena. Tickets for Bud Light Opening Night and all regular season games are available online at
