Silvertips Update

Tonight’s meeting is the fourth of 10 this season between Everett and Seattle. The Silvertips lead the season series 2-1, most recently scoring four goals in the third period for a comeback 4-2 home victory on New Year’s Day.

Seattle came into the weekend reeling. Despite holding a commanding lead in the U.S. Division, the T-birds (32-14-0-1 going into Friday night’s home game against Kamloops) had lost three of their last four, including an embarrassing 8-1 home loss to Tri-City on Wednesday.

Offensively, Seattle seems to have found the right combination with a line containing 18-year-old center Aaron Gagnon (24 goals, 22 assists), 20-year-old right wing Derek Couture (16 goals, 16 assists) and 18-year-old left wing Ladislav Scurko (11 goals, 20 assists).

All three are in the top 15 in the WHL in plus/minus rating, combining for a plus-67. Nineteen-year-old defenseman Zack FitzGerald, Seattle’s top enforcer, is back in the lineup after missing games last week because of a shoulder injury.

In goal, 19-year-old Bryan Bridges continues to lead the league in wins (25-11) and goals against average (1.66).
