The Dennis Williams Era officially got underway Monday when the Everett Silvertips welcomed their fifth head coach in franchise history and introduced the Stratford, Ontario native to the local media and fans in attendance for the afternoon news conference at XFINITY Arena.
All that’s left now: make more personal connections, finish the move, and officially get started for training camp.
Here’s how the move and reaction took shape:
