The move may be a surprise to Americans fans, but the club was facing a numbers problem.

The Tri-City Americans have announced the trade of fan-favorite Jordan Messier to the Moose Jaw Warriors.    Messier, who spent his entire WHL career in Tri-Cities, was unfortunately one of a number of what are called “overage” players on the Am’s roster. By the end of October, every WHL team must be down to only three 20 year olds, and Messier was of them.

GM Bob Tory called it an unfortunate situation, praising the work and effort of one of the more popular faces in the American’s lineup.  The 6’2″ forward from Canmore, Alberta, scored 77 goals in his 270 games with Tri-Cities. Messier leaves the Americans in the top 15 in various categories, including games played, goals scored and points. Messier, known by many fans for wearing #19 throughout his career, will leave behind younger brother Marcus (#21).

He will be missed by many fans for his hard work and role in the American’s success the last four years.
