Silvertips shut out by Raiders

Everett set to face Saskatoon, former assistant coach Love.

PRINCE ALBERT, Saskatchewan — The Everett Silvertips lost to the Prince Albert Raiders 3-0 on Tuesday at Art Hauser Center.

After a scoreless first period, the Raiders took a 1-0 lead on a goal by Brett Leason at the 13:17 mark in the second period.

Leason scored his second goal of the game at the 17:20 mark of the third period, and Justin Nachbaur added an empty-net goal two minutes later.

The Raiders outshot the Silvertips (7-5-0-0) 30-24.

Everett goaltender Dustin Wolf made 27 saves.

Love to face Tips for 1st time

For the first time as head coach in the Western Hockey League, Mitch Love will face his former team.

Love, the first-year bench boss of the Saskatoon Blades, will go against his former team Wednesday as Saskatoon hosts Everett at the SaskTel Centre. Love was a fan favorite as a player for Everett from 2003-05 and served as an assistant coach for the Silvertips from 2011-2018.

Love is off to a terrific start with his new club. The Blades (8-3-1-0) are second in the East Division. He’s inherited a talented roster, headlined by Kirby Dach, regarded as a projected first-round pick by draft pundits in the 2019 NHL Draft.

“I am very happy to see Mitch doing well,” Silvertips head coach Dennis Williams said. “We are in the game to move players and coaches on to higher positions/levels. It should be a good game. Both teams I am sure will be amped up and ready to play.”
