Graham Sward’s assist sparks Spokane Chiefs to 5-3 win over Everett Silvertips

UPDATED: Sun., Feb. 9, 2020

The course of a hockey game can change on a big goal or a big hit. But can it change on an assist? If you’re the Spokane Chiefs, absolutely. Sixteen-year-old Graham Sward sent a beautiful pass from his own goal line past the red line to Leif Mattson, and the veteran scored on a breakaway to tie the game in the second period. It was the boost the Chiefs needed as they went on to beat the Everett Silvertips 5-3 in a key U.S. Division matchup. It was Spokane’s fifth win in a row.
