Bruton ready to play again


When the Chiefs travel to Tri-City on Saturday (7 p.m.; Comcast channel 12; 790-AM), they'll probably have assistant captain Chris Bruton available.

Bruton, who has been out two weeks following facial surgery, will probably be wearing a mask but will be ready to go.

The Everett Silvertips made a change, dealing a draft pick for 19-year-old right wing Dan Gendur from Prince George. The trade may just upgrade the Tips' offense.

The Tri-City Americans sent out a player.

Portland, which upset Vancouver last weekend, doesn't get back into action until the Winter Hawks host Everett on Saturday.
