T-Birds sign left winger to contract

For the Reporter

Left wing Matthew Wedman has signed a WHL standard player agreement with the Seattle Thunderbirds, general manager Russ Farwell announced today.

Wedman was the T-Birds' second-round selection, 38th overall, in the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft. Wedman played for the South Side Athletic Club last season and had 32 goals and 40 assists for 72 points in 33 games.

"It is great to have Matthew signed and committed to the Thunderbirds for the future of our team," Farwell said. "He was one of the top young forwards in this year's draft and will be solid two-way center that will play in all situations."

The T-Birds start the regular season on the road against the Portland Winterhawks on Sept. 19 at the Moda Center.

The T-Birds' home opener is Saturday, Sept. 20, against the Everett Silvertips at 7:05 p.m. at ShoWare Center.
