LAST GAME (EVT 1 – CGY 0 / 10-6-17): Kevin Davis’ early third period goal stood as the game winner and Dorrin Luding turned in his first career WHL shutout on 29 saves as the Everett Silvertips edged the Calgary Hitmen, 1-0 before 4,982 fans at Scotiabank Saddledome on Friday in league action. The Silvertips, snapping back to back losses that came in the final four minutes of regulation or less, earned their first win in Calgary since 2013-14 while the penalty kill only had to extinguish two chances. The Tips edged Calgary in the face-off circle, 33-27 while keeping Jake Bean off the scoresheet in his return from the Carolina Hurricanes.

TOP 5 TIPS TIDBITS

  • STEADY AS SHE GOES: The Silvertips are the only team in the last 14 WHL seasons to reach the playoffs every season … they have captured five U.S. Division titles, most recently last season when they went 44-16-9-3.
  • ALBERTA BORN: Nine players are on the Silvertips roster who are originally from Alberta … center Matt Fonteyne (Wetaskiwin, AB native) is making his final regular season visit to Edmonton for his WHL career and will play in his 275th lifetime WHL and Silvertip game on Sunday, tied for 8th in franchise history.
  • GOAL ORIENTED: The Silvertips posted 21 goals in the first six games and in their 4-1 win against Tri-City, posted 52 shots on goal on Sept. 24 … the mark was three shots off the franchise single game record (set vs. Portland, 2006-07) … they entered the weekend 9th in the WHL in shots per game (33.3).
  • RILEY ON THE RADAR: Riley Sutter, third year Silvertips forward, was named to the NHL Central Scouting Service’s “Players to Watch” Preliminary list on Oct. 3 (“B” rating) … he has four goals and five points in six games.
  • DEWAR OF GOOD DEEDS: Connor Dewar notched the 48th hat trick in Tips history on Oct. 3 in Spokane and the first of his career (the last 2 Tips hat tricks have been scored in natural fashion – Patrick Bajkov earned his first, 12/2/16 vs. Medicine Hat) … Dewar has points in five of the last six games and is third (as of Saturday) the WHL for shots (28).

 

MILESTONE ALERT

  • Patrick Bajkov is 24 games away from 300 in his WHL career
  • Kevin Davis is 1 assist away from 100 and 19 games away from 300 in his WHL career
  • Carter Hart is 3 shutouts away from the Silvertips all-time record and 8 away from the WHL all-time record
