May 28,2014(ISN) – KENNEWICK, WA – Tri-City Americans Governor/General Manager Bob Tory announced today
that the team has added former Americans’ forward Nathan MacMaster to the team’s
scouting staff for the upcoming 2014-15 season. MacMaster’s coverage area will be

MacMaster, a Calgary native, spent 4+ years in the WHL after originally being

going on to appear in 140 games with Moose Jaw before being traded to the Calgary
Hitmen in the midst of the 2010-11 season. MacMaster was then picked up by Tri-City
early into the 2011-12 season, going on to play in 58 games and total 11 points and
41 penalty minutes for the Americans. In all, MacMaster played in 248 WHL games,
combining to collect 19 goals, 60 points and 156 penalty minutes.
“Nathan was a hard-working, character-type player for our club and he understands
the culture and expectations of our team,” explained Tory. “We look forward to him
bringing that same passion and enthusiasm to our scouting staff.”
