For one, there’s a new coaching staff. And the names fans are used to seeing – Anderson-Dolan, Reid, Woods, Brkin, Ty Smith – won’t be on the backs of any jerseys.

Spokane Chiefs release Bailey Brkin and Kaden Hanas, both 20-year-olds

UPDATED: Mon., Aug. 19, 2019, 6:33 p.m.

With training camp and the 2019-20 season approaching, the Spokane Chiefs have released two 20-year-old players, goaltender Bailey Brkin and forward Kaden Hanas, to give the team some overage flexibility. Both cleared Western Hockey League waivers and are free agents. Brkin appeared in 52 regular-season games during the 2018-19 campaign with a 2.75 goals-against average and started all 15 of the Chiefs’ playoff games with a 2.55 GAA. The Chiefs addressed their goaltending by acquiring Czech goalie Lukas Parik in the import draft.
