The broadcasts, led by veteran announcer Craig West, have been a favorite of thousands of fans in the U.S. and Canada.

This past season, the Americans finished 7-12, but lost five games not played due to COVID-related issues.  Several WHL teams were in the same boat, including Victoria and Calgary. Each lost five games due to WHL shutdown protocols. Victoria had the roughest go, finishing 3-15-1.

The Americans had a better record than Spokane but finished just behind them points-wise due to playing fewer games.

2021-2022 schedule information has not been released yet by the WHL, but we expect it to be out later this spring-summer.  Keep checking back here and at the Americans website.
