KENT, May 13, 2013 — Seattle Thunderbirds general manager Russ Farwell today announced the team has signed Scott Eansor to a WHL Standard Player Agreement.
Eansor is a center/left wing from Denver, Colorado, who played for the Colorado Thunderbirds Tier 1 Minor Midget team last season. This is the same midget program that developed current T-Birds Griffin Foulk and Danny Mumaugh.
“I’m extremely excited to sign with the T-Birds. I am thankful for the opportunity to play in the WHL,” said Eansor from Denver. “I came in and practiced with the team prior to playoffs last season. When I was here I loved the hockey atmosphere and the talent level of the team. I am ready to work hard towards a successful season next year and am looking forward to playing with a great group of guys.”
Eansor’s signing brings the number of players the T-Birds have signed to a WHL Standard Player Agreement since last summer to seven. Of those seven, five were selected in the 2012 Bantam Draft and one was taken in the 2011 Bantam Draft.
“We are excited to have Scott elect to play in the WHL and join us with the Thunderbirds,” said T-Bird general manager Russ Farwell. “He has built a reputation as a tenacious, hard-working player and this decision shows he is very serious about pursuing his hockey goals. Scott joins a very deep list of signings this year and because of these we are excited about the future of our team.”
