Spokane moves into second place


Make it two in a row. That's how Spokane has opened the post-Christmas segment of its schedule following a 6-2 win over Prince George.

The win sends the Chiefs home for a Saturday night game (7; 790-AM) with Tri-Cities in a tie for second place in the WHL's U.S. Division. The Americans defeated last-place Portland on Thursday night and sit in a tie with the Chiefs and idle Seattle for second behind Everett.


The Chiefs also made a trade Thursday, which we covered here yesterday. You can find Jeff Bunch's story here, and more on his Chiefs' blog.


The Everett Herald has a feature on the Tips' newest defenseman, 6-foot-3, 202-pound Jesse Zetariuk.
