EVERETT, Wash. – The Everett Silvertips (@WHLSilvertips) announced their Giveaway and Promotional Schedule for the 2017-18 season, their 15th in the Western Hockey League, and a pair of unveiled jerseys the team will wear for home and road games designed to commemorate the anniversary campaign.
The jerseys, manufactured by CCM Hockey and designed internally by Silvertips promotional and operations staff, is inspired by the “throwback game” jerseys worn by the Silvertips in each of the last two seasons. Both jerseys feature tie-down laces at the base of the neck collar, an “Old English” style letter “E” on the front with contrasting base, trim, and Silvertip bear shoulder patches alternating in white and green colors.
“For our 15th season in the Western Hockey League, it made complete sense to celebrate our growth with a jersey that gives a nod to a retro theme and was fully embraced by our fans over the last two seasons,” said Consolidated Sports Holdings International chief operating officer and governor Zoran Rajcic. “We’ve taken a deep breath over the last few months to evaluate how we can make a better experience for our friends through the turnstiles each night. Their feedback is valuable, paving the way to our goal this season to embrace our history as a franchise and aim for a fresh approach in the feeling of each game night.”
