Trombley makes 41 saves for first WHL win as the Americans beat the Winterhawks

PORTLAND, Ore. - Troy Trombley stopped 41 shots Friday for his first Western Hockey League victory as the Tri-City Americans defeated the host Portland Winterhawks 6-2.

Zachary Yuen and Justin Feser each had a goal and two assists for the Americans (32-22-3), who halted a three-game slide, and Mitch Topping, Brian Williams and Connor Rankin had a goal and an assist apiece.

Jesse Mychan added a single goal to round out Tri-City's offence.

Chase De Leo and Oliver Bjorkstrand each had a goal and an assist for the Winterhawks (46-9-3), who fell to 23-6-1 on home ice.

Mac Carruth picked up the loss after allowing five goals on 24 shots in 45 minutes of action. Brendan Burke replaced Carruth in the third period and stopped 7-of-8 shots in relief.

Tri-City went 2 for 3 on the power play while Portland failed to score on five chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
