SEATTLE — Tod Leiweke, CEO of NHL Seattle, was in Kent Thursday evening to support the WHL U.S. Challenge Cup tournament this weekend.
Twelve teams with 13 and 14-year-olds from across the Western U.S. and Canada will play games between the ShoWare Center and Kent Valley Ice Centre.
It’s part of a grassroots effort by the new NHL franchise to grow hockey, scout young players and find new fans in the region.
