The 16-year-old rookie netminder, Austin Lotz, made 50 saves and was named the game's first star in his WHL debut. Lotz stayed busy in his first Silvertips appearance, facing 53 shots to hold Everett in the game despite being outshot 54-35 in total.  The game had a calming start up until four minutes into the first period, then Lotz ended up facing 20 shots before the first 20 minutes were out.  After the Blades were up 2-1 heading into the third, Lotz was again peppered with 20 shots in the final frame where he went to go 19 for 20. In the final minute the Silvertips pushed for a late goal with the extra attacker on the ice, but failed to tie the game as the Blades took advantage and scored an empty netter to close the game at 4-2.

This athlete has a competitive mindset of his own that can help his team succeed. The Silvertips will now travel east to Spokane for a road game against the Chiefs Saturday night at 7:05.
