After the Game 5 win in front of the biggest crowd in accesso ShoWare Center history on Friday, May 12, 2017, the team boarded a flight to Regina on the morning of Saturday, May 13, 2017.
Heading into Game 6 the T-Birds held a 3-2 series lead over the Regina Pats. Game 6 was originally played on Sunday, May 14, 2017, which was Mother’s Day.
The series against the Pats up to Game 6 had been a hard fought series featuring two overtime games, were early goals and lead changes, big hits, sacrifices and teamwork from both the T-Birds and Pats. Game 6 was no different as the T-Birds looked to win their first ever WHL Championship and the Pats looked to force a Game 7.
The team broadcast the first game of the 2017 WHL Championship on Friday, April 24, and has broadcast a game every Friday thereafter. The first five games are all available to watch on the team’s YouTube channel.
As part of the YouTube broadcasts the T-Birds are giving high school students in the Kent School District who have an interest in or are studying journalism, graphic design and video production the opportunity to be part of the team’s promotion of the YouTube broadcasts as an extended learning opportunity. High school students have produced stories, graphics and video highlights that have been posted on the team’s website and social media platforms during and after the YouTube broadcasts.
