The Seattle Thunderbirds have acquired right wing Noah Philp from the Kootenay Ice in exchange for a fifth-round bantam pick in 2018 and a fifth-round bantam pick in 2019.

“Noah brings us an experienced forward that has offensive potential. He has played that role in Kootenay and will get the chance to step in and do that for us this year,” general manager Russ Farwell said Monday.

Philp had eight goals and 11 assists in 65 games with the Ice last season. Philp has played 132 games and has 14 goals and 27 assists for 41 points in two seasons with the Ice.

The T-Birds wrap up preseason play with back-to-back games against the Everett Silvertips – Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Xfinity Arena in Everett and at 7 p.m. Saturday at the ShoWare Center.

Single-game tickets for the Sept. 23 home opener against the Tri-City American, featuring the raising of two championship banners, are on sale online on the T-Birds website and at the ShoWare Center box office.

Season tickets may be purchased by calling the T-Birds office at 253-239-7825.
