Wotherspoon, Sceviour Ink NHL Tryout Offers
Portland, Ore. - Two former Winterhawks have inked professional tryout offers (PTO) with NHL clubs this week, as both Tyler Wotherspoon and Colton Sceviour have found new homes.
Wotherspoon, 28, will attend training camp with the New Jersey Devils to begin the season.

Through nine professional seasons, the native of Surrey, British Columbia has played a total of 463 games split between the NHL and AHL.
Sceviour, 32, signed on the dotted line with the Edmonton Oilers Wednesday. From 2004-07, Sceviour was a forward in the 'Hawks lineup and in the 2007 NHL Draft he was selected by the Dallas Stars (#112 overall). The upcoming campaign will be the 13th of Sceviour's career, playing with Florida and Pittsburgh since his departure from the Stars organization in 2016.
The Portland Winterhawks begin their 46th season of play on October 1 and will host Seattle on October 2 for the team's Pacific Office Automation Opening Night. Special Red Out Ticket Packages are on sale now for it.
