Yesterday I wrote about 3 suspensions and one player quitting the US Under 18 team. The player who left the program is Jacob Fallon. His WHL rights are held by the Seattle Thunderbirds.
In an exchange of emails with Seattle G.M. Russ Farwell I have confirmed that the T-Birds have reached out to Jacob to discuss his level of interest and are waiting to hear back from him.
Fallon can play for Seattle this year as long as he hasn't played a game after January 10th, providing the Thunderbirds have room on their 25 man roster for him.
Currently Seattle trails Kelowna by 5 points for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
