The Everett Silvertips announced Monday they have traded 18-year-old right wing Cameron Abney to the Edmonton Oil Kings in exchange for 19-year-old center Clayton Cumiskey.

Cumiskey, a 6-foot, 188 pounder from just across the border in Abbotsford, B.C., has 51 points in 153 career WHL games and was an original member of the Oil Kings when they were an expansion team. This season he had one goal and 11 assists in 23 games with Edmonton.

Abney, a 6-foot-4, 194-pound enforcer from Aldergrove, B.C., was a third-round pick in the NHL draft by the Edmonton Oilers last June. He had three goals, three assists and 60 penalty minutes in 34 games this season, playing primarily on the fourth line.

Everett general manager Doug Soetaert said in a press release that he thinks Cumiskey can play on the top two lines.
