The T-Birds Getting Defensive This Year BY ANDREW EIDE, 710 ESPN SEATTLE http://mynorthwest.com/category/thunderbirds/

The Seattle Thunderbirds enter the 2013-2014 season with an experienced defensive core. It was just two short years ago that this was not the case. Due to injuries and lack of depth the team was forced to rely on young rookies to man their blue line, and they paid for it. The 2011-2012 squad took their lumps on route to allowing over four goals a game. That’s a tough way to win hockey games. That team saw Shea Theodore, Jared Hauf and Evan Wardley make their WHL debuts as rookies who were pretty green. Theodore and Hauf were 16, Wardley 17, and the three defenseman combined to play 154 games that year. Talk about a trial by fire. Those guys took their lumps that first year and as well as at the beginning of last season. As last year wore on however the defense began to gain some momentum. With the team making a late season playoff run the group began to figure it out and down the stretch they started to grow into a tight checking squad. That became evident in the seven game playoff series against the high powered Kelowna Rockets – a team that scored 100 more goals than Seattle and doubled them in points. They held a Kelowna team that scored over 300 goals, averaging 4.3 goals a game, to just three goals a game. It was seven games of hard-hitting, tough playoff hockey and even though Seattle came up just short, their defense had arrived. The team got a taste. Not only a taste of the playoffs but

also of being able to shut down good teams. Now they look to carry that into this season. “They (Kelowna) were one of the better offensive teams,” Jared Hauf says of the playoffs. “It was really good for us to get that playoff experience and know that we could compete with a team that doubled us in points, just the will that we had ANDREW EIDE to win. We didn’t quite get it but it gives us an advantage this year” The T-Birds showing in the playoffs has everyone hungry to get this season going and to take another big step forward. For the first time in several years there are not questions about how the defense will play. Theodore, Hauf and Wardley are now entering their third WHL season and with 20-yearold Jesse Forsberg and the improving Griffin Foulk the team’s defense can now be considered a strength. “We’ve got a great group of guys coming back from last year,” Shea Theodore says about his defensive mates. “We didn’t really lose a guy on defense, that’s key. We’re coming closer as a group.” As a group they’ve gone from fighting through growing pains to a high level of belief and confidence. The expectations from the fans are high this year, and the players have raised the bar even higher. “I think we shouldn’t expect anything but perfection from here on with our group,” Evan Wardley says. “We have a

veteran group back there, most of us are returning from last season, for us to come back its great for the organization.” Seattle has some young and upcoming prospects as well. Most notable is last year’s second round pick Ethan Bear. Bear has a chance to see some action this year at 16 and will most likely benefit from having guys like Theodore, Hauf and Wardley around - guys who remember what it was like to still be learning the game. “I feel older, that’s for sure,” Wardley says of entering his third year. “But I’ve got a lot more experience that I’m happy with carrying into the season. With my experience I can help the younger guys who are coming in this season and do my best to do that.” Playing defense at 16 in a league with as many high end prospects as the WHL can be a daunting task. No matter how good of a player that 16 year old is, he is going to get beat and make some mistakes. The trick is learning from those mistakes and moving forward - something that takes some time to learn. “You’ve got to make the most of every day,” Hauf says about coming into the league. “When you’re younger you kind of go through the motions a bit more. It just takes that little extra to get noticed and separate your self. There are tons of good players and defensemen and you’ve got to get that little extra to get ahead.” Getting ahead and staying ahead is something the T-Birds look to do more of this season. To do that you need to play defense and that is something Seattle can now do, and do well. For updates all season long, follow Andrew on Twitter @ andyeide

New Era of Talented Rookies BY TIM PIGULSKI, 710 ESPN SEATTLE http://mynorthwest.com/category/thunderbirds/ The conversation around bringing a professional hockey team to Seattle has intensified over the past few months. Despite attempts to either acquire an existing team or form an expansion club of their own proving unsuccessful to date, the future appears bright, as Seattle now appears to be a frontrunner when the NHL decides to adjust. The future for the Thunderbirds is just as hopeful as a number of fresh faces have the potential to put the National Hockey League on the backburner in fans’ minds for the next few years. Any discussion regarding Kent’s major junior hockey club, rookies or otherwise, starts with Mathew Barzal, a 16-year-old that is as hyped in North American hockey circles as Ken Griffey Jr. was in the baseball world upon his arrival in the Emerald City. With world-class ice vision, skating skills, onice awareness, stickhandling abilities, and the rare knack for making those around him better, Barzal is prepared to step in as a rookie and provide an impact that few can at such a young age. “There are a lot of good players in the system right now,” says the highlyregarded young center. “It will be an adjustment for me and there will be growing pains, but I hope to make a contribution offensively and defensively. I don’t want to be a player they have to take off the ice if there’s a faceoff in the defensive zone. I want to be out there in every situation.” The discussion doesn’t end with Barzal, however, as a number of other talented young skaters will play an important part in his success. Three other players drafted with Barzal in 2012, right wing Keegan Kolesar, defenseman Ethan Bear, and center Lane Pederson, all have a great shot at making the final roster this season and writing a story of their own. Scott Eansor joins the team under different circumstances but the skill to contribute right away. Kolesar, a powerful 6-foot-1, 216 pound forward, hails from Winnipeg, Manitoba. He was seen briefly last season during one game versus the rival Portland Winterhawks and two playoff games against the Kelowna Rockets. As the thunder to Barzal’s lightning, Kolesar is a very different kind of player than his draftmate. A hulking presence, the 16-year-old will create fits for opposing defenseman, most of whom he already outsizes. It should be

exciting for fans and teammates and terrifying for opponents to think of the presence he’ll have as an 18-year-old, if not this season and next. “It’s a great feeling [knowing I’ll get to play with these guys in the future],” says the former first-round pick. “These guys have been drafted very high and they have the skill to show for it. It makes you want to work harder to be better than them. Everyone pushes each other to be better and it raises the competitive level. The best players TIM PIGULSKI show up when they need to and that happens through competition.” Bear, a 5-foot-11 defenseman from Ochapowace, Saskatchewan, has impressed his coaching staff since being drafted. As a 16-year-old, he has worked himself into consideration for a roster spot, despite the team featuring a number of talented older players. Defensemen generally face a steeper learning curve than forwards, but Bear has performed remarkably in training camps against more experienced competition. Facing off against others his age, he’s made his job look easy. The two-way defenseman’s emergence will give the team much more flexibility with its roster moving forward. “With everyone returning it is a little bit harder,” says Bear, who played last season for the Yorkton Harvest in the Saskatchewan AAA Midget Hockey League. “I’m fighting for a spot and working hard and just hoping for the best. I think camp has gone pretty well. I’ve learned a lot from the veterans and hopefully given a good impression to the coaching staff.” Pederson, a fifth-round selection, didn’t enter the league with nearly the same bravado as those drafted before him but has been one of the most impressive players on the ice during training camp. Pederson dazzles with fancy moves that are reminiscent of some of the WHL’s most prolific scorers, yet he also possesses a maturity beyond his years. The 16-year-old, who has lined up at both center and wing, has cemented himself as a player to watch in the upcoming years.

Your

“I did it”

“Throughout my entire life I’ve always been one of those underdog guys that has had to work really hard for everything,” says the Saskatoon native. “I’ve always had the drive to prove people wrong and with getting picked in the fifth round, I just saw it as the first step on my path to getting to play in a league that I really wanted to get to.” Arriving in Seattle with a bit different of a background, Scott Eansor is a 17-year-old center from Englewood, Colorado. Coming from the touted Colorado Thunderbirds development program, the 5-foot-10 forward signed shortly after the news of Barzal’s commitment to the T-Birds. He was added to Seattle’s 50-player list – that is, players the team wanted to keep a close eye on who were undrafted - prior to last season. He arrives this year perhaps with less fanfare than others, but with just as much opportunity to make a big impact for a team in need of talented young centers. “It took a while to get back and the adjustment has been difficult but I think it has gone well,” says the speedy Eansor, who missed most of last season with an injury. “I’d been talking to a lot of colleges that I really liked and always thought I was going to go to the NCAA. The injury turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I came up here, loved the atmosphere, loved the team, and I’m really excited to be a part of it.” Aside from these four, there are a number of other young players who have an opportunity to make the team this year or next. Austin Douglas is a 6-foot-6 defenseman who surprised during camp with his ability to control the puck and skate around opposing defenders. Logan Flodell is a 16-year-old goalie who looks like he could be the team’s netminder of the future. Carter Folk, a 17-year-old Regina native, is a grinder who isn’t afraid to throw his weight around and drop the gloves. If the team is struggling, his energy could be a welcome addition and have the potential to swing momentum in the T-Birds’ favor. There are a number of other 15-, 16-, and 17-year-olds who deserve to have their names included here. If they continue to develop as hoped, the appropriate recognition will surely follow. With all of this promising young talent, the Thunderbirds have the potential to be a perennial playoff presence over the next few years.
