The Tri-City Americans are seeking a big bounce at the Toyota Center Tuesday when they take on the Swift Current Broncos.

The Ams suffered a tough 8-1 loss to Portland at home Saturday,  and are looking to take out their frustrations on the Central Divison's Broncos.   The U.S. Division of the Western Hockey League has been a wide-open affair so far,  with nobody really taking control.  Spokane, Tri-City,  Portland, Seattle and Everett have been taking turns beating each other, and the Americans are looking to build some momentum.

Tot, #17,is one of the 20-year-olds and is a welcome addition this season after missing most of last year due to a concussion.   Last October 26th, he took a hit and suffered a head injury, and was out the rest of the campaign, having played only 15 games.     Tot spoke with Americans broadcaster Craig West about his strong start in 2013 after his return to the team.
