Totems Advance Player to NAHL

The 2010-2011 Pacific Division Champion Seattle Totems are pleased to announce that defenseman Kyle Blondin will be playing in the North American Hockey League with the Alexandria Blizzard. The Blizzard (Alexandria, Minnesota) were the 2010-2011 USA Hockey Tier II - Central Division Champions. Blondin, Coach Murphy’s 2010 off season acquisition ended the 2010 campaign as a NORPAC 1st Team All-star on defense and received attention (like many Totem players) at the National Junior Tournament.

“I’m very proud of my time with the Seattle Totems. My dad grew up watching the old pro Totems in Seattle – so playing for the Totems was a big deal. I’ve been lucky enough to meet pros like Tommy McPhee and Howie Hughes and Jr. Totems who have worn the jersey proudly – I have feel honored to have worn the Green and White. The expectation and the realization of going to the National Tournament provided us the opportunity to show the hockey world what we are made of and many of us benefited in terms of college hockey and junior hockey opportunities. 

I want to thank the coaching staff for continually pushing us to excel both on and off the ice; my teammates for all the hard work they put in, Pascale for driving us on our road trips in the bus, the Murphy clan for all that you do, the game night volunteers, and all the fans – I share this accomplishment with you. 

I am going to miss the guys – and raising the banner at Olympic View – make sure and get it on the web so I can at least watch!

Totems for life.



 4 year long leader of the Totems, Kyle Farrell’s future is moving forward outside the game of hockey. After finishing is Junior hockey career with the Totems, Kyle has been attending Central Washington University to receive his Bachelors Degree in Law and Justice. Kyle will be graduating this summer, but not only will he be graduating, he has been given a conditional offer of employment by the highly respected Washington State Patrol. Pending is last two department tests, he will be going to the State Patrol academy at the end of July.
This is a tremendous honor for not only Kyle but the Totem family. Kyle worked very hard as a Totem and had multiple years of leading the team in scoring. He was a captain for 3 years with the team; he led by example on the ice and with leadership in the locker room. We have no doubt that Kyle will become a great police officer and help protect our communities.
Kyle explains that “playing for the Totems has taught me many life skills that I have learned from my teammates and coaches. I thank all of them for their hard work and effort they have put in. I have always wanted to be a police officer and I feel like I have finally reached that goal. I would like to coach one day with Murph and give back to the game that gave me so much.”

Coach Murphy and the Totems staff are very proud of Kyle!

Congrats # 11

Beckstrom to Utah State!


When the Utah State University hockey team take to the ice this season they will be joined by former Totem Ian Beckstrom. Beckstrom, a 6’1 200lb forward committed over the summer to play for Coach John Eccles and the USU Aggies.


Beckstrom played 2 seasons for the Totems. In 2007-2008 he had a successful season as one of two 16 year old rookies. However after playing the game for 10 years, Beckstrom opted to hang up the skates following the team’s trip to Nationals. It was over 2 years later when he realized how much he missed the game and a “team” that Coach Murphy reminded him, once a Totem always a Totem and invited him back to play the final month of the 2010-11 season. It was last summer that Beckstrom worked to get back into hockey shape with one goal in mind for his last year of eligibility, and that was to get to the next level and play college hockey


The call during the summer from Coach Eccles showed that the hard work paid off.


Throughout the past decade Utah State Hockey has seen its success and popularity skyrocket. Utah State now competes in the ACHA DII West Division and has made several trips to regionals and nationals during the past ten years. During the 2011-2012 season, the Aggies under Coach Eccles finished with yet another trip to Nationals, playing well against top D-II teams in the country. Drawing crowds near 2000 for all home games, the Aggie players have earned high respect in the town of Logan.


Beckstrom’s size and speed will prove beneficial to the Aggies, he’s strength will able him to dig pucks out of the corner and has the skills and speed to move the puck up the ice.


When asked about his time with the Totem’s, Beckstrom had this to say “I really appreciate the loyalty showed by the both the owner and the Totems coaching staff. They gave me the opportunity to come back and play after time away from the game and without that chance I would not be where I am today. I can’t imagine any other junior hockey program that help individual players move on after their junior careers more than the Totems, and for that I will be forever grateful. T4L!
The Totems staff is very proud of "Becksy" and wish him all the best at Utah State!

open arms and has been my family for the past 3 years and it's been an honor to
have played under such a loyal and selfless coaching staff. Without the support
and loyalty I don't know if I would still be playing hockey today," says

Kinkopf to MIAC Hameline University!

After Bein...g traded to the Alaska Avalanche over the summer Patrick racked up 6 goals and 7 assists with a plus 8 rating and two shootout wins. When asked about his experience as a Totem Patrick went on to say, " Being a part of the Totems is being part of a family. It is a top notch program and the coaches really care about the players. I want to thank both Coach Murphy and Coach Wilson and the entire organization for everything that they have done for me. I don't know if I would be going on to play college hockey without their guidance throughout my career. T4L!"
