LAST TIME OUT:
EVT 7 – SEA 2 (2-2-19): Silvertip captain and Minnesota Wild prospect Connor Dewar earned a six point night for his second career hat trick as the Silvertips threw 41 shots on goal and went three-for-nine with the man advantage, crushing the Seattle Thunderbirds, 7-2, before 8,317 fans at A.O.T.W. Arena on Saturday night in U.S. Division action. For the first time in franchise history, the Silvertips have recorded three hat tricks in three straight games (1/26/19 Zack Andrusiak vs. Lethbridge, 2/1/19 Bryce Kindopp vs. Seattle, 2/2/19 Dewar vs. Seattle).
