With a huge year for Collin Jacobs coming up as he will get looked for the 2011 NHL Draft, the Seattle Thunderbirds Tentative Schedule is now out as the home games are now scheduled while they waiting on the road games and any last minute changes due to media engagement to make the schedule final for the 2010-2011 season which begins in late September.
Last year, Jacobs had a decent year with 13 goals and 26 points in all 72 games played last year in his first full year of Juniors in the Western Hockey League. Currently, he's the only Southwest player in the Western Hockey League, however, 2 other players have WHL Rights with one who's planning to be a long term player in Seth Jones who's going to be with the USNTDP in the USHL, his rights are with Seattle's Local Rival Everett Silvertips
Also Connor Richards who was selected by the Portland Winterhawks who is going to at least play most of this season with the Detroit Honey Baked team which plays Travel Hockey in Michigan, don't be surprised if he may get some playing time later in the season.
Seattle opens the season with a 3 game weekend with a home game against Portland, plus road games against the defending Western Conference Champion Tri-City Americans and the Everett Silvertips.
Here's the Tentative Schedule, the Full Schedule should be out on August 10.
