— Everett Silvertips (@WHLsilvertips) October 6, 2019
Jackson Berezowski and Gage Goncalves were both held out Sunday against Spokane after both played on Saturday when the Silvertips took on the Kamloops Blazers. Our Jordan Bremner was at the game and said Berezowski took a hard fall into the boards and was slow to leave the ice. When asked post-game about the injury, Silvertips Head Coach Dennis Williams wouldn’t comment as he wanted to talk to Berezowski first. As for Goncalves, there’s no word what led to his absence or how long he may be out for. For Jordan’s full-post game report, you can go here.
