LAST GAME (EVT 4 – KEL 3 (SO) / 9-29-17): Carter Hart turned in 35 saves in his return while Matt Fonteyne’s goal in the third round of a shootout capped a come-from-behind, 4-3 shootout victory over the Kelowna Rockets before 4,718 fans at Prospera Place on Friday in WHL action. The Silvertips, who rallied out of a 3-0 deficit, leaned on goals by Matt Fonteyne, Connor Dewar and Riley Sutter to force overtime while Hart, making his season debut, stopped six shots in overtime and two of three in the shootout.

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 12 goals in the first three 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).
  • THE HART OF THE MATTER: Two-time reigning WHL Goaltender of the Year and Silvertips MVP Carter Hart, earning the #1 star last night with 35 saves at Kelowna, was reassigned to the Silvertips last Saturday after suiting up in training camp with the Philadelphia Flyers … he is second on the Silvertips all-time list in wins (86), fourth in games (150), and second in shutouts (19).
  • NO PEEP AGAINST THE PK: Ranked #1 last season in the WHL, the Silvertips have turned in a 14-of-15 effort on the penalty kill in their first three games.

 

MILESTONE ALERT

  • Patrick Bajkov is 27 games away from 300 in his WHL career
  • Kevin Davis is 5 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

ON THE BOARD

The following Silvertips have collected their first career WHL point this season:

  • Reece Vitelli (goal) – Sept. 23 vs. POR
