The Everett Silvertips skated Thursday following a Wednesday loss and in anticipation of Friday’s game against the Moose Jaw Warriors.
It will be interesting to see who starts at goaltender Friday. Fifteen-year-old Blake Lyda is coming off a strong debut effort in the 3-2 overtime loss to Tri-City. Dorrin Luding remains the most experienced option. Dustin Wolf continues to fully participate in practice so his return should come in the next few weeks.
It made for a fairly light news day as far as the Tips are concerned, but there are a few links to send your way.
– The big WHL news of the day occurred when the Medicine Hat Tigers shipped overage forward Zach Fischer to the Spokane Chiefs.

Fischer left the Tigers last week prior to Everett’s game in Medicine Hat. Forward Hayden Ostir, defenseman Eric Van Impe and a second-round 2019 bantam pick went the other way to the Tigers.
– Everett Silvertips owner Bill Yuill owns a number of other hockey (and baseball) franchises. Consolidated Sports Holdings International, Inc., the sports arm of Yuill’s Monarch Corporation purchased the Peoria (Ill.) Rivermen of the Southern Professional Hockey League in the offseason. Yuill is the subject of an article in the Peoria Journal Star:
