  • SERVING THEIR COUNTRY: The Silvertips are without assistant coach Mitch Love (Team Red) and forward Brett Kemp (Team Black), both participating with Hockey Canada in the World U-17 Hockey Challenge in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario … it is Love’s second straight year coaching in the event and he earned a gold medal last year … the event lasts from Oct. 27 – Nov. 5.
  • 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 292-166-58 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)
