Parker Fowlds is the Everett Silvertips’ billet to the stars.
The 77-year-old is the longest serving of the Silvertips’ player hosts, having housed Everett players at his Everett home during the season ever since the team began play in 2003. Over that time Fowlds has hosted 15 different Tips on a regular basis, and what makes Fowlds extra notable is that group includes the top three players on my list of the 15 greatest Silvertips over the team’s first 15 years.
Here’s the list of players Fowlds has billeted (players in the top 15 are starred):
I’ve been meaning to do a feature story on Fowlds for a while, and now seemed like the ideal time as Everett’s players arrive for training camp this week, meaning Fowlds is about to go back to work again. On-ice sessions take place Thursday through Sunday at Angel of the Winds Arena.
