EVERETT, Wash. — The Everett Silvertips debuted their new white 20th Anniversary sweaters in style Friday night, posting a 1-0 shutout victory in their preseason opener against the Spokane Chiefs at Angel of the Winds Arena.
Austin Roest tallied the lone goal for the Tips, a rebound buried on the powerplay 10:43 into the first period. Jackson Berezowski and Ben Hemmerling earned helpers on the goal.
Braden Holt stopped all 29 shots in net for the win, including 15 in the third period.
“The first game obviously isn’t going to be perfect,” commented Roest after the game. “But I thought the boys battled hard and we got the win… I think we’re coming together just fine.”
