Silvertips Will Open 68-game Regular Season Schedule Now on Sunday, Oct. 3 at Spokane
EVERETT, Wash. – The Everett Silvertips (@WHLSilvertips), two-time Western Conference champions and eight time U.S. Division champions of the Western Hockey League, announced revisions to three dates on their full 68-game, 2021-22 WHL regular season schedule.
The following changes have been applied (new dates in bold, all times PT):
- Sunday, October 3, 2021–Everett at Spokane – 5pm (previously scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 19)
- Tuesday, November 16, 2021 – Everett at Portland – 7pm (previously was scheduled as Silvertips at Kelowna, for Saturday, Oct. 2)
- Sunday, April 3, 2022 – Everett at Seattle – 5:05pm (previously was scheduled as Silvertips at Portland for Mar. 30)
The Silvertips full schedule, in addition to pre-season, can be viewed here. Due to ongoing border restrictions preventing non-essential bus travel from Canada into the United States, teams in the U.S. Division will compete exclusively against divisional opponents, while teams in the B.C. Division will compete exclusively against their division opponents during the month of October. The WHL continues to work with government and public health authorities in each of the six provincial and state jurisdictions located in WHL territory to ensure the health and safety of WHL players, staff, and officials, as well as the communities in which the WHL operates.
Following these changes, teams in the Western Conference are now scheduled to begin inter-division competition beginning Wednesday, November 3.
The Silvertips home schedule, which still begins with “Opening Night” on Oct. 8 at 7:05pm against Portland at Angel of the Winds Arena, now includes games on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday for 30 of 34 dates. The Silvertips open their 19th season of play in the WHL and defense of their eighth U.S. Division title will open on Sunday, Oct. 3 against the host Spokane Chiefs, 5pm at Spokane Arena.
