Winter Hawks


Next: The Winter Hawks (10-56-2-1) are at Spokane on Friday and Seattle on Saturday, before playing host to Spokane in Memorial Coliseum at 5 p.m. Sunday.

Tribune player of the week: Hardworking overager Jacob Dietrich scored twice as Portland ended its 22-game losing streak Saturday night, beating Seattle 4-3.

Kudos to goalie Kurtis Mucha, who withstood Seattle's 28-shot third-period onslaught.

• A nice pre-game ceremony Saturday honored the 1983 and 1998 Memorial Cup champions, with former radio announcer Dean Vrooman serving as emcee.

Former players who attended:

1983 - Brad Duggan, Randy Heath, Kelly Hubbard, Rich Kromm (now Portland's coach), Derek Laxdal, Jim Lorenz, Ray Podloski, Grant Sasser, Alfie Turcotte, Gord Walker, Ken Yaremchuk

1998 - Brent Belecki, Kyle Chant, Kevin Haupt, Todd Hornung, Chris Jacobson, Shon Jones-Parry, Gerry King, Derek MacLean, Joey Tetarenko, Ryan Thrussell
