When teams face the Everett Silvertips these days, they can expect at least 20 minutes or so of real hard hockey.

All coaches and players will tell us it is all about playing hard for the entire 60 minutes, but when the Silvertips take the ice, the opposition now knows it will have to contend with the skills and ferocity of defenseman Noah Juulsen (MTL) for at least a third of the tilt. While the veteran rearguard patrols the blueline, he logs plenty of ice time while eyeing a job in professional hockey. One could say he is leaving his mark on WHL opponents. Read more»
