LAST TIME OUT:
EVT 5 – SEA 2 (2-1-19): Bryce Kindopp earned a natural hat trick, the first of his career, while forward Zack Andrusiak notched a four-point night (1g-3a) in his return to Kent as the Everett Silvertips defeated the Seattle Thunderbirds, 5-2, before 4,513 at the accesso ShoWare Center on Friday night in WHL action. The Silvertips potted four goals in the third period to seal their victory, moving to 5-0-0-0 this season over the Thunderbirds and winning the last eight meetings, while they went three-for-five on the power play, backed by a 29-save performance from Silvertip goaltender and reigning WHL and CHL goaltender of the week, Dustin Wolf.

TOP 5 TIPS TIDBITS

  • MOVIN’ ON UP: The Tips entered today ranked #7 in the CHL Top-10 rankings … they have resided in the Top 10 for the last 10 weeks … the Tips have won or gained points in 28 of the past 35 games … their 74 points are second most in the WHL
  • HOWLING WOLF: Dustin Wolf this week was named WHL and CHL Goaltender of the Week … he has been listed along with Tips D Gianni Fairbrother to the NHL Central Scouting midterm rankings … since Nov. 1, he has the lowest goals-against-average (1.86) in the WHL, with a minimum of 500 minutes played.
  • ZACK ATTACK: Tips forward Zack Andrusiak, acquired Jan. 1 from the Seattle Thunderbirds, returned to Kent for the first time since the trade last night and bagged four points (1g-3a) … his fourth career hat trick helped lift the Tips to a 9-1 win vs. Lethbridge last Saturday … as a Silvertip, he has 8 goals in 12 games and his 35 goals are 3rd in the WHL.
  • OPEN THE FLOODGATES: After enduring a three game losing skid where they scored four goals, the Silvertips rebounded to now run their win streak to three games, scoring 16 goals in that span.
  • BRYCE YOURSELVES: Bryce Kindopp had his first career hat trick (natural) last night and has scored 10 goals since Jan. 1 … his 28 goals are a new career high.
