EVERETT, Wash. – Victoria Royals goaltender Griffen Outhouse posted a 39-save outing while Royals center Kody McDonald potted the game-winning goal at 7:54 in the third period as the Victoria Royals defeated the Everett Silvertips, 2-1, before 5,412 fans at A.O.T.W. Arena on Sunday afternoon.

Silvertips 19-year-old forward Bryce Kindopp notched the Silvertips lone goal, his 23rd goal on the season, one shy of his career high of 24 goals.

“I liked our effort for a three-in-three and our bounce back from last night,” Head Coach Dennis Williams said. “(Bryce) has been one of our best players all year. He goes about his job and it was a big goal set up by Max Patterson on a good forecheck.”

UP NEXT: The Silvertips hit the road on Friday, Jan. 25, to play the Tri-City Americans in Kennewick (1380 AM / 95.3 FM / Tips App / WHL Live). The Tips return home, Saturday, Jan. 26, to face off against the visiting Lethbridge Hurricanes at 7:05 p.m. Tickets available at

In a scoreless opening period, Everett landed 13 shots on visiting goaltender Griffen Outhouse, while Silvertips goaltender Max Palaga turned nine shots away.

Each team fell short on converting on their respective power play opportunities, as Victoria committed two penalties and Everett committed one in the opening frame.

An offensive turnover by the Silvertips early in the second led to a three-on-two break for Victoria. Royals’ winger Tarun Fizer potted the game’s first goal, which put the Royals up 1-0 at 1:40. Royals’ defenseman Mitchell Prowse picked up the loose puck and fed left winger Phillip Schultz up ice, who delivered a cross-crease pass to Fizer.

The Silvertips maintained offensive zone pressure in the second as they landed 12 shots in the second, totaling with 25 shots on goal after two periods.

Kindopp tied the game, 1-1, just 57 seconds into the third period. Everett defenseman Gianni Fairbrother fed 19-year-old forward Max Patterson, who connected a behind-the-net centering pass to Kindopp in the slot who nailed a one-timer top-shelf.

The Royals regained the lead, 2-1, at 7:54 as McDonald deposited the game-winning goal in front with a shot from the point, assisted by defenseman Scott Walford.

The Silvertips landed 15 shots in the third, while Palaga finished the game with 20 saves.
