LAST GAME (TC 5 – EVT 4 / 9-30-17): Morgan Geekie’s go-ahead goal with 1:04 to play lifted the Tri-City Americans past the Everett Silvertips, 5-4, before 4,475 at Toyota Center on Saturday in WHL action. The Silvertips were supported by their top line again, with Matt Fonteyne, Patrick Bajkov, and Connor Dewar combining for seven points. Fonteyne led the Tips with three points and Kevin Davis added his first multi point game of the season with two assists. Tri-City rallied from a 4-3 deficit in the third period, on Juuso Valimaki’s game-tying goal with 3:15 left and Geekie’s game winner, set up by Jordan Topping on a pass into the slot.

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.
  • ROARING 20’S: All 3 Silvertips in their overage year return for their fifth season with the franchise – forwards Patrick Bajkov and Matt Fonteyne, and defenseman Kevin Davis … all 3 players, if playing the full 72-game schedule, are on pace to break the all-time games played recorded in Tips history, held by Shane Harper (335).
  • GOAL ORIENTED: The Silvertips posted 16 goals in the first four 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).
  • 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 three goals in four games.
  • NO PEEP AGAINST THE PK: Ranked #1 last season in the WHL, the Silvertips have turned in a 15-of-16 effort on the penalty kill in their first three games.

 

MILESTONE ALERT

  • Patrick Bajkov is 26 games away from 300 in his WHL career
  • Kevin Davis is 3 assists away from 100 and 24 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
  • Riley Sutter played in his 100th career game in the WHL on Sept. 24 vs. Tri-City
