Everett Gave the Champs a Fight

With the Portland Winterhawks skating to the 2013 Ed Chynoweth Cup on Sunday, the Silvertips can claim that they played the WHL Champions as tough as any team in the league this season. After dropping a pair of home contests to the ‘Tips and needing six games to dispatch Everett from the first round of the playoffs, the Winterhawks rolled to a 12-3 record for the rest of the postseason – defeating Edmonton in six games in the league final. Including regular season and playoffs, the Silvertips, Oil Kings and Tri-City Americans were the only teams to manage three victories over Portland this season.

Gudas Gets a New Contract

Silvertips alumnus Radko Gudas signed a new three-year NHL contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning last week. In the first NHL action of his young career this season, the 22-year-old defenseman posted five points (2g/3a), a +3 rating and 38 penalty minutes after being recalled from the AHL. He ranked seventh among all NHL rookies with 87 hits despite playing only 22 games for the Lightning. That performance earned Gudas his second pro contract following the expiration of his entry-level deal, which was signed during his Everett days after becoming Tampa Bay’s third-round pick in the 2010 NHL Draft.
