TOP 5 TIPS TIDBITS

  • THE GREAT “EIGHT” FOR CONSTANTINE: Silvertips head coach Kevin Constantine returns for his fourth consecutive season behind the bench, and eighth overall in Everett … he was named WHL coach of the year in 2003-04 … under his watch, the Silvertips have won the U.S. Division four times … he is 288-166-57 all-time behind the Silvertips bench … he has served as head coach in the National Hockey League for eight years (San Jose, Pittsburgh, New Jersey)
  • GOING DEEP: For the second straight game on Wednesday, the Silvertips delivered 10 players who registered a point on the scoresheet … they have 19 players with a point through seven games this season … a total of 14 players have a +1 rating or better
  • LOCK DOWN: The Silvertips lead the league in fewest shots allowed (22.4) and fewest goals allowed (1.8) per game … the Silvertips limited the Prince George Cougars to 41 shots in two victories on Tuesday and Wednesday at CN Centre.
  • START ME UP: The Silvertips start of 6-1-1-0 matches their last highest point total (13) through eight games, with an identical point total in 2014-15 … in that span, they trailed only for 23:21 … CURRENTLY: they have scored the first goal of the game in seven of the first eight games
  • DOMINIC RACKS ‘EM UP: New acquisition Dominic Zwerger returns to Spokane for the first time since the Silvertips acquired him in September … he has a five game point streak … Zwerger led Spokane last season with 27 goals and was a member of Austria for the World Junior Championships.
