Road conditions and the closure of Snoqualmie Pass prompted the Spokane Chiefs to postpone Wednesday’s game against the Seattle Thunderbirds.

The game has been rescheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 7:05 p.m. at the Spokane Arena.

“The safety of the players and team staff is paramount and with the road conditions the way they are between Seattle and Spokane, both teams came to the conclusion that tonight’s game will be postponed,” said Chiefs’ General Manager Scott Carter.

The Washington Department of Transportation closed Snoqualmie Pass both directions Wednesday because of slippery conditions and debris on the freeway after a big ice storm. The agency said it would evaluate whether to reopen the pass Thursday.

Tickets for Wednesday’s game will be accepted as is for the rescheduled game date on Tuesday, January 24, which will remain a TicketsWest Player Magnet Giveaway Night. For fans who cannot attend the January 24 game, tickets may also be exchanged for a future game at the Chiefs’ Ticket Office located on the southeast corner of the Spokane Arena. Contact the Chiefs’ Ticket Office at 509-535-PUCK with questions.
