The Chiefs looked very impressive in both games. They scored early in both games and dominated Lethbridge.

As a huge supporter of the Spokane Chiefs, all I have to say is...
2008 WHL Champions!

...and now, time to go for their second Memorial Cup!


Also got this blurb via e-mail just now:

The Spokane Chiefs are WHL Champions. A 4-0 sweep of the Lethbridge Hurricanes has earned Spokane the first ever Ed Chynoweth Cup and a berth into the Memorial Cup in Kitchener, Ontario from May 16th through the 25th.

Chiefs fans will have the first opportunity to welcome the WHL Champion Spokane Chiefs and the Ed Chynoweth Cup to the Spokane Arena on Thursday morning between 7:00 and 8:00.

The team will be leaving tonight and travel back home to Spokane. The bus will stop at Avista Stadium in the valley and receive an escort through downtown Spokane before arriving at the Arena. Fans are welcome to join the caravan from Avista Stadium and help escort the Championship club to the Arena.

Fans can also welcome the Chiefs when they arrive at the Arena with the Ed Chynoweth Cup.

Tune into the network morning shows and listen to Cat Country KDRK for more information.

With three goals, two of them game winners, Spokane native Tyler Johnson was named the series Most Valuable Player. Johnson scored to make it 2-0 on Wednesday night and Spokane tallied two more times for the win. Mitch Wahl, David Rutherford and Ondrej Roman also had goals for the Chiefs.

The Spokane Chiefs have access to a limited amount of seats to the MasterCard Memorial Cup May 16th through the 25th in Kitchener, Ontario. Chief's fans can purchase full tournament passes through the Chief's office only from 9:00 am through 5:00 pm on Thursday, May 8th. Packages, which include tickets to every available game at the Memorial Cup, are $513. There will be no availability to purchase single game seats to Chiefs games. Ticket Packages to the Memorial Cup must be paid in full on Thursday.

I really think this Chief team will take home the Cup... they have been on fire after grinding out the OT games against Tri!

Zag79, to which former Chief do you refer (just curious)?

When I graduated in 1990 I moved out to NY and lived with my father briefly. I was out mowing the lawn one morning and looked across the street and noticed someone across the street doing the same thing. The guy looked really familiar but I just couldn't place the face right away. I went inside later and asked my dad who lived across the street. He told me, "Oh, its three guys who play with the Islanders." As soon as I heard he was a hockey player it all fell into place. I looked out and saw that the guy was just finishing up. I walked across the street and told him, "I've seen you play hockey." Naturally his response was the he played on the Islanders. I responded back, "No, I've seen you play hockey in SPOKANE". He gets this look on his face and says "No Way Eh!" It was non other than goon extraordinaire Mick Vukota (http://www.hockeygoon.com/vukota.html). We shared a couple beers and talked about some of the great fights that the Chiefs used to get in when he was there.
