A New Season Means Some New Faces for the Seattle Thunderbirds BY ANDREW EIDE, 710 ESPN SEATTLE http://mynorthwest.com/category/thunderbirds/

T

he regular turnover of your roster is one of the constants that junior hockey teams have to deal with year in and year out. The Seattle Thunderbirds roster is no different and there are some exciting new faces in the lineup this year that the team hopes will have a positive impact. The first move the team made this summer was to pick up goalie Brandon Glover from the Calgary Hitmen in exchange for a third round pick in next year’s Bantam Draft. Glover is a 20-year-old goaltender who is excited about playing in Seattle. “My first thought was that Seattle is a great city and really close to my home town of Victoria, I was pretty happy with where I ended up,” he said of the trade. “Then I talked to people who had been through ANDREW EIDE the organization and they had nothing but good things to say about the guys here. I had a chance to come down here this summer and meet the coaching staff and Russ and they made me feel right at home”. With Calvin Pickard moving on to start his pro career Glover will come in and take over the number one spot in net. With Calgary last year Glover played 39 games and is ready for a larger role with the T-Birds. “In the past I’ve been part of one-two goalie tandems and split times, I’m definitely ready for a bigger role this year and to let the team rely on me to play games and give us a chance to win every night - that’s what I’m prepared to do,” he said of taking on the number one role.

Seattle has a young defense and Glover’s experience should help those guys this season. This is one of the main reasons Seattle was eager to bring Glover here. “I hope they find me a calming presence back there,” Glover says of his young defense. “So they can relax and focus on what they need to do and they can find me reliable so they don’t need to worry about me - I’m back there for them.” To further shore up the defense the Thunderbirds went out and picked up Jesse Forsberg from Prince George in exchange for Colin Jacobs. Forsberg is 19 and a tough, physical defenseman who played in 170 WHL games in his career with Prince George. Like Glover, he was excited to come and play for the Thunderbirds. “I was really excited,” he said of the trade. “I was looking for a new start somewhere and I when I saw it was in Seattle I was real excited and I couldn’t wait to get out here. It feels like I’ve been here for a while now, everybody’s opened up, really good guys here, it feels like I’m already part of the team, it’s just a really good situation.” Forsberg describes himself as a gritty, hard working player who brings a lot of passion. Something that the Thunderbirds hope will rub off on their young group on defense. He was also Prince George’s team captain and should be a great leader for Seattle. Leaving Prince George meant leaving his brother, Alex, who is a star center for the Cougars. That should make for an interesting match up when Seattle first faces the Cougars in Prince George on September 28th. “It’s gonna be a little weird, obviously, from playing with him last year,” he said of the sibling rivalry. “But once the puck drops he’s like any player in the other jersey so it’s going to be exciting. We’ve talked about it a little bit, what it will be like to see each other in different jersey’s but once the game starts he’s just like any other player and I’m the same to him.” In the CHL import draft Seattle made two selections who should both be impact players this year. They started by selecting Russian Alexander Delnov with the eighth overall pick of the first round. Delnov is a center who was drafted in the fourth round by the Florida Panthers in last spring’s NHL Entry Draft. He has good size, will help on the offensive end and could push to be one of the top centers for the Thunderbirds this season. Seattle was not done in the import draft after selecting Delnov. They traded for Edmonton’s first round pick (60th overall) and selected winger Roberts Lipsberg from Latvia. Lipsberg is a hard working player who describes his game as ‘aggressive’ and has shown he has a good, hard shot during training camp. These four new players are excited to be in Seattle and ready to help the Thunderbirds find their way back into the post-season.

Shea Thedore: Kent’s Next Big Thing BY TIM PIGULSKI, 710 ESPN SEATTLE http://mynorthwest.com/category/thunderbirds/

S

Shea Theodore isn’t your typical 17-yearold. After all, when he was just 16, before he could legally obtain an unrestricted driving license in his home province of British Columbia, Theodore left his parents and home town of Aldergrove, B.C. to move to Kent and play for the Seattle Thunderbirds. The Thunderbirds had selected Theodore in the 3rd round of the Western Hockey League’s 2010 Bantam draft, helping him take the first significant step in pursuit of his dream of someday playing in the National Hockey League. Standing 6’0” and weighing 170 pounds, Shea exceeded all expectations in his first WHL season, registering an impressive 35 points in 69 games for a Thunderbirds team unable to make the playoffs last season. His individual performance last year catapulted him up the draft boards into a position where many experts predict him being selected by an NHL club in the first round, making him one of the top 30 players in the world at his age. In speaking with the impressive young defenseman, I learned that his success wasn’t always a sure thing. “To be honest…I wasn’t sure if I was even going to make the team [as a 16-year-old],” said Theodore. “I don’t think I had much hype coming into camp,” he recalled, referring to the Thunderbirds’ yearly August training camp.

During the brief camp, Theodore impressed General Manager Russ Farwell and Head Coach Steve Konowalchuk enough to convince them to give him a shot. He didn’t disappoint, transforming before fans’ eyes from a relative unknown to one of the best offensive defenseman in the league. Even with the newfound hype, the young defenseman has been able to keep everything in TIM PIGULSKI perspective. “It’s certainly nice to hear it, but at the end of the day I just put it in the back of my mind,” he said. “I just think about the season and making the playoffs, which is the most important thing right now. Whatever happens after that happens. Hopefully it’s good news.” Hearing that the Thunderbirds’ top player is still focused on the team’s goals should excite a fan base starving to witness some postseason hockey. “We’re going to have a great team this year. There will be a lot of new faces that will help out and we should be much better,” predicted Theodore. One of those new faces is defenseman Jesse Forsberg, who was acquired from the Prince George Cougars this offseason in exchange for center Colin Jacobs. During training camp, Theodore and Forsberg suited up together on the same defensive pairing, providing a sort of “thunder and lightning” combination – Theodore as an of-

fensive powerhouse and Forsberg as a more conservative stay-athome defenseman. The two were very impressive and should create a formidable top-line tandem that will give opposing teams fits. Recently, the T-Birds’ young blueliner was selected to play for Team Canada at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in the Czech Republic, which pits the top under-18 players from around the globe in a week-long competition. Although he didn’t register any points in the tournament, Theodore helped his Canadian team go undefeated and win a gold medal, eliminating Finland in the tournament’s final contest. “It was a pretty special feeling to be selected as one of the top 22 players in Canada and represent your country,” he said. “We certainly did that, coming home with a gold [medal].” Theodore compares himself to recent Thunderbirds defenseman Brenden Dillon, who played for the team from 2007 through 2011. “I may not be as big, but we are similar in some ways as far as skating and moving the puck.” Dillon, who stands 6’3”, went undrafted by an NHL team, but after an impressive final season in Seattle, was signed by the Dallas Stars. He has since enjoyed a significant amount of playing time for their minor league affiliate, the Texas Stars, with a few brief appearances for the big league team.

Even with his tremendous talent, Shea still enjoys many of the same simplicities as others his age, and it sounds like he’s beginning to take in the Seattle lifestyle. “Last year I got to catch my first Mariners game, which was pretty big!” he exclaimed. “This year I’ll try and head to a Seahawks game.” If you’re lucky, you may even be able to catch him and some of his teammates exploring Kent Station on their days off, enjoying some fine dining and seeing whatever new movies might be in theaters. “It’s great. It’s got some nice stores and good food, and a lot of good movies came out last year. I’d say that the movie theater is the biggest hit amongst the ‘Birds.” It’s not often that fans have the opportunity to see a future professional play at such a young age. It’s a privilege that followers of Seattle sports would be wise to exploit as soon as possible due to the high likelihood that Shea will only be in the Pacific Northwest for two or three more years. Thunderbirds fans have a lot to look forward to, from Theodore to 15-year-old phenom Mathew Barzal. Barzal, also from British Columbia, was the T-Birds’ first overall pick in last year’s WHL Bantam Draft and was very impressive in training camp, but he won’t be eligible to play for the team until next season. Before we wrapped up, Shea left me with some interesting words for the upcoming season: “Be prepared for a new team. There will be quite a lot of changes, hopefully for the positive, and we’re going to make the playoffs this year.” Thunderbirds fans should hope he’s right.
