It’s opening day for the Tips, and in conjunction with that The Herald has put together quite the package for the readers.

First off, our Silvertips preview section came out in the paper today. Kudos to copy editor Aaron Swaney and photographer Jennifer Buchanan for making it look so good. The online version can be found here.

Secondly, we’ve also put together a few videos to help you get to know the players, particularly the newcomers, a little better. Again, great job by Elaine Helm and Justin Best putting these together.

Finally, I’m providing a link to my previous blog on my non-predictions for the season in case anyone missed it. The news about Zack Dailey being named captain broke about one minute after I posted that blog, so it kind of got buried.

Anyway, for those headed to Kamloops, have a safe trip and enjoy the game.
