The Spokane Chiefs will play three games in as many days this weekend when they travel to Everett for the Silvertips’ preseason tournament.
The Chiefs will play Kamloops, Vancouver and Seattle on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, respectively. All three games begin at 3 p.m.
Spokane will travel with 30 players (four goaltenders, nine defenseman and 17 forwards) for its first action of the 2005 exhibition season. The numbers do not include Adam Hobson, Chicago’s seventh-round selection in this summer’s NHL Entry Draft. Hobson is attending the Blackhawks’ prospects camp this week. Myles Stoesz, Atlanta’s seventh round pick in 2005, and rookie Johannes Salmonsson, Pittsburgh’s second round choice in 2004, will both fly out of Seattle on Sunday morning to attend their respective pro camps.
Fred Haney of the Reserve Vineyards in Aloha, Ore., fired a 5-under-par 66 to take a two-stroke lead in the championship division heading into the final round of the Pacific Northwest Senior PGA Championship at Manito Golf and Country Club.
Haney fired a 66 and leads Don Waller of Kalispell, Mont., by two strokes. Randy Puetz (66) and Henry Childs (67) shot better than Waller but were playing from the white tees.
Six players from the championship tees will advance to the Senior Club Professional Championship at PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Fla., Oct. 20-23.
Gary Lindeblad of Indian Canyon Golf Club and Steve Prugh of Manito were six shots off the pace after each fired a first-round 72.
Final round action begins today at 7:40 a.m.
