LIVE BLOG: Follow the Everett Silvertips at Prince George

The Everett Silvertips are up north tonight for back-to-back road games against unbeaten and CHL top-ranked Prince George.

The Cougars are 8-0 on the young season and already 10 points ahead of second-place Victoria in the B.C. Division standings. They boast the league’s second-leading point producer in Brad Morrison (four goals, eight assists) and one of the league’s top goalies in Ty Edmonds (5-0, .941 save percentage, 1.59 goals-against average).

Oh yeah, they’ve got former Silvertip Yan Khomenko, whose three goals and four assists make him Prince George’s fifth-best point producer.

The Tips left Sunday to split the long journey into two days and give themselves a chance to skate at assistant coach Mitch Love’s home rink in Quesnel, B.C.

Tonight’s game starts at 7 and you can find the live blog below that will begin about 6:45.

In other news:

– Saskatoon goaltender Logan Flodell was named the CHL Goaltender of the Week Tuesday.

You might remember Flodell was the presumed to be the starter for Seattle this season. Instead the T-Birds went out and acquired Rylan Toth, who has thus far proven disappointing (1-2, .861, 4.35 GAA). Rookie Carl Stankowski (1-0, .857, 2.70) has played in two games while Seattle recently made a deal with Spokane for Matt Berlin.

– The good news for the Thunderbirds is that overage forward Ryan Gropp was unexpectedly sent back by the New York Rangers.

Gropp was Seattle’s top scorer last season and his return is all the more important since Mathew Barzal is going to stick with the New York Islanders for the time being.

– The Dub Network ( has its weekly “Overreaction Monday” column that mentions Michael Rasmussen, whom the Silvertips are no doubt already sick of seeing.

Enjoy tonight’s game and feel free to weigh in:
