Former Tri-City Americans defenseman Drydn Dow will play for the University of Calgary Dinos this season.

Dow is one of six former Western Hockey League players who will suit up for coach Mark Howell. The others are Daniel Gibb (Prince George), Davis Vandane (Spokane, Prince Albert), Danny Gayle (Moose Jaw and Calgary), Chris Collins (Chilliwack, Saskatoon) and Chance Lund (Seattle, Swift Current).

The 5-foot-9, 170-pound Dow is a native of Calgary. He spent four years with the Americans, playing 222 games. In his final season, he had five goals and 28 assists, and was one of the top players on special teams.

The Americans lost in the first round of the playoffs, but Dow had a sensational postseason with three goals and two assists. He was named the team’s playoff MVP.

“Drydn is a smooth skating, offensively gifted defenseman who will be counted on to play on the power play and key offensive situations,” Howell said in a press release.
