Have you ever wondered just how many 20-goal scorers the T-Birds have had each season? Or maybe you questioned where Luke Lockhart stood on the team’s all-time games played list. Find the answers to these questions and many more in the Seattle Thunderbirds Official Media Guide.
We have taken the files we use to keep track of team statistical information and put them online. Fans can now view team statistical information on T-Birds players, both past and present. These are the files the team would use for a Media Guide. Click on a season below to view the statistical history of the team, seasons, players and the WHL heading into that season. For example, the files for the 2013-14 Media Guide are updated through the 2012-13 season. The information is provided in Word, Excel and PDF files. You can print off the files or save them to your computer for easy reference.
The information found in our Media Guide would not be available without the help of numerous people. The T-Birds are very thankful for the work of 2013 summer Public and Media Relations Interns Elise Rooney, Erin Saunders and Daniel Brown in helping compile team statistics and information. 2013-14 season Public and Media Relations Intern Matt Swanson also contributed research to these guides.
Melissa White, Mitch Bley and Delaney Berreth were Public and Media Relations interns with the team during the summer of 2014. They did a significant amount of research and fact checking of statistics and information for the 2014-15 season guide.
The T-Birds also appreciate the work of former Public and Media Relations Interns Adam Kendrick, Ashley Kapioski, Matt Freeman, Nicole Peterson, Nicole Stull, Natalie Tyson, Ryley Dozier, Aaron Calendine, Connor Bennett, Kerry Colby, Matthew Roberson, Kylie Magar, Malea Baumgartner and Bryn Metzger who helped research statistics and team information during their internships that are found in the Media Guide.
Seattle hockey historian Jeff Obermeyer has provided written pieces for the Media Guide. Jeff is a long-time Seattle hockey fan and author of the book “Hockey in Seattle”. Along with the written pieces, his vast knowledge of the history of hockey in Seattle was very helpful.
The T-Birds also owe a debt of gratitude to Dan Mulhausen, formerly of the Tri-City Americans, for his help with the documents and spreadsheets the T-Birds are using to keep track of team statistical information.
While we strived to make these guides as accurate and informative as possible, we do recognize that based on available information at the time of creation, there could be errors in the guides. If you believe you have found an error in one of the guides please contact T-Birds VP, Marketing and Communications, Erin Crooks.
