PREVIEW: The Tips continue their British Columbia road trip against the Victoria Royals on Sunday, September 8th for a matinee match at 1:00pm. It will be the only time the teams meet in pre-season play, and the first in pre-season since the 2015-16 campaign.
- Are off to a 4-0 start for the pre-season and yesterday defeated Kelowna, 1-0 behind Keegan Karki’s 25-save shutout (Aidan Sutter provided the game winning goal). A quartet of Silvertips: Justyn Gurney, Michal Gut, Max Patterson and Dawson Butt lead active Silvertips with three points in the pre-season, while Jake Christiansen and Gianni Fairbrother – away at NHL camps – pace the Tips with four points each.
- Victoria is seeking their first win of the pre-season after an 0-4 start. They dropped a 6-4 loss to Kamloops yesterday, and are led by Sean Gulka’s three points (2g-1a) in three games.
The last time these two teams met:
- The Silvertips closed out the 2018-19 regular season with a 5-1 victory against the Royals at home on March 16, 2019. Martin Fasko-Rudas tallied a hat-trick, and Max Palaga stopped 18 of 19 shots on goal. The Tips went 2-1-0-1 last season against Victoria.
UP NEXT: The Tips will close the 2019 pre-season on Tuesday, a 7:05 p.m. face-off against the U.S. Division rival Seattle Thunderbirds from accesso ShoWare Center in Kent.
