EVERETT, Wash. – The Everett Silvertips (@WHLSilvertips), proud member of the Western Hockey League and seven-time U.S. Division champions, announced today that goaltender Dustin Wolf will wear a mask designed by the fans for the 2019-20 WHL season. Wolf will accept submissions starting today at www.everettsilvertips.com/wolfmask, awarding several winning art submissions with autographed memorabilia from Wolf and a grand prize winner to receive a meet-and-greet and lunch with Wolf on a date to be announced.
“Designing something like this takes imagination and passion,” said Wolf. “I’m fortunate to have a clean, blank mask to work with and thought it would make sense to put it in the hands of passionate Silvertips fans this summer.”
“I’m looking forward to their creativity and the different ways they can help design something that positively reflects the city of Everett, the Puget Sound, and our franchise. I can’t wait to get started with them.”
Wolf’s mask will depict a mixture of fan submissions, categorized into separate panel zones: left and right sides, chin, top, and backplate. Each fan who submits artwork to www.everettsilvertips.com/wolfmask will be entered, with Wolf personally selecting his preferred designs for all five mask zones later this summer via Facebook Live, at fb.com/everettsilvertips. Each designer of the winning selections will be personally invited to assist in presenting the mask to Wolf, with one random grand prize selection winning a lunch and meet-and-greet event with Wolf.
Fans who assist in helping spread the news on Wolf’s mask design campaign via Silvertips Facebook and Twitter, in association with Silvertips Select-A-Seat on May 11 at Angel of the Winds Arena, will be entered to win Silvertips prizes. All accounts registering a new or renewed season ticket deposit of $50 (full season and mini plan packages) by May 11 will be eligible to win a Silvertips Suite Night upgrade at a regular season home game during the 2019-20 regular season.
