JER­SEY HOUND

EVERETT SILVERTIPS | 2017-18

The Hockey News - - Buzz - – RYAN KENNEDY

This is just a sin­is­ter en­try by the WHL’s Silvertips. The Everett fran­chise turns 15 years old this sea­son, so the squad has come up with spe­cial sweaters de­signed to have a “throwback” feel. And it is a win­ner. Based off spe­cial jer­seys the team has worn on pre­vi­ous throwback nights, these will be worn on des­ig­nated an­niver­sary evenings dur­ing the sea­son.

The clean lines and big, bold ‘E’ logo are ex­cel­lent. The best flour­ish, how­ever, may be the bear mas­cot on the shoul­der. Everett has gone through a cou­ple of main crests and while that preda­tor is nice, it wasn’t too dif­fer­ent from a lot of other hockey bears.

The throwback bear, how­ever, has a clas­sic feel and def­i­nitely sells the over­all look.
