Spokane, Wash. — The Spokane Chiefs announced on Friday that they have signed 2004-born defenseman Logan Cunningham to a WHL Standard Player Agreement.
“We’d like to officially welcome Logan and the Cunningham family to the Spokane Chiefs,” said general manager Scott Carter. “We look forward to seeing Logan develop here in Spokane.”
Cunningham, a puck-moving defenseman from Yellowknife, N.W.T., was selected by the Chiefs in the third round (59th overall) of the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft. He wore an “A” as an underage at the 2019 Canada Winter Games, scoring a goal and two assists in six games for Team Northwest Territories. He will play for the Northern Alberta Xtreme (“NAX”) Elite 15s of the CSSHL during the 2019-20 season.
Cunningham becomes the second player from the Chiefs 2019 bantam draft class to sign a WHL agreement, joining first-round pick Ben Thornton.
The Chiefs open their home schedule with Bud Light Opening Night & Pre-Game Party on Saturday, Sept. 28 versus the Tri-City Americans! The party starts outside the main entrance to Spokane Arena at 4 p.m. with music, food and drinks. Arrive early to see the team “walk the red carpet” and sign autographs to kick off the season.
