In preparation for a four-game road trip, the Spokane Chiefs announced the addition of defenseman Reid Gow to the active roster. The 15-year-old Gow, the Chiefs’ first selection in the 2009 Bantam Draft, will make his debut tonight against Portland.
Gow plays for the Southwest Cougars in the Manitoba Midget AAA League.
The call-up addresses a pressing need for the Chiefs, who are down to five defensemen with captain Jared Cowen (Canada) and Stefan Ulmer (Austria) at the World Junior Games and Garrett Leedahl injured.
It will be the Chiefs’ second visit to Portland. The road team has won the previous six games between the teams, including Portland’s come-from-behind 5-4 win Sunday in the Arena.
