Connor Sanvido scores twice to lead Thunderbirds over Chiefs 6-4

KENT, Wash. - Connor Sanvido scored his first two goals of the season Tuesday to lead the Seattle Thunderbirds over the Spokane Chiefs 6-4 in the Western Hockey League.

Luke Lockhart and Alexander Delnov both added two goals as Seattle (5-3-0) won its third in a row.

Lockhart, the Seattle captain, scored his second into an empty net with 1:20 left to ensure the win for the Thunderbirds.

Spokane had goals from Mitch Holmberg, his 10th of the season, Mikulas Rimmel, Adam Helewka and Reid Gow.

Spokane (6-3-0) outshot Seattle 32-23 in the game but the Thunderbirds got 28 saves from Brandon Glover in the victory.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
