Seattle Thunderbirds general manager Russ Farwell today announced the team has acquired defenseman Griffin Foulk from the Everett Silvertips in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2014 Bantam Draft.

"We feel Griffin has considerable upside and we liked what we saw from him," Farwell said. "We felt he would be a good addition to our group at this time."

Foulk, from Broomfield, Colo., is a 6-foot, 185-pound left-handed defenseman in his rookie season. He has appeared in 14 games this season for the Silvertips and has not registered a point.

The T-Birds take on the Portland Winterhawks at 7:05 p.m. Saturday at the ShoWare Center. They face the Everett Silvertips at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday, also at the ShoWare.

T-Birds' single-game tickets are available online at the T-Birds website and at the ShoWare Center box office. The ShoWare Center Box Office is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday game days at 10 a.m. and Sunday game days at noon.

T-Birds season tickets are on sale. Season tickets can be purchased by calling the T-Birds office at 253-239-7825.
