KENT, December 3, 2012 — Seattle Thunderbirds general manager Russ Farwell today announced center Tyler Alos has retired from hockey.

“Tyler is a valuable member of our team and will be missed,” said Farwell. “He has been advised by doctors against returning to the ice this season. We know this was a difficult decision to make but it is made in his long term best interest and we fully support him.”

“It’s been a great four years with the T-Birds,” said Alos. “The fans and the organization have treated me very well. I am disappointed my playing career is coming to an end but I am looking forward to helping the team wherever possible and starting to learn the game from a coaching perspective.”
