Eaton, Luton have eventful weeks in NFL

Snohomish County’s two NFL quarterbacks experienced differing fates the past weekend.

Lake Stevens High School graduate Jacob Eason, who’s a member of the Carolina Panthers’ practice squad, finished out Sunday’s 24-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams because of a spate of injuries to Carolina’s quarterbacks. Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold both missed the game because of injuries, then P.J. Walker was injured during the game. Eason was 3-for-5 for 59 yards and an interception, and although he reverted to the practice squad he’s a candidate to start this Sunday’s home game against Tampa Bay.

Meanwhile, Marysville Pilchuck High School graduate Jake Luton was waived by the New Orleans Saints. Luton was signed to the Saints’ 53-man roster from the practice squad on Oct. 1 as starter Jameis Winston dealt with an injury. With Winston nearing a return, Luton was waived Saturday so the Saints could make moves to address injuries at receiver. Luton re-signed with New Orleans’ practice squad Tuesday.

Kispert to miss start of NBA season

Edmonds native Corey Kispert, now a small forward for the NBA’s Washington Wizards, will miss the start of the season because of injury.

Kispert, who’s entering his second season, suffered a sprained ankle during Washington’s preseason game against the Golden State Warriors on Oct. 1 in Japan. The injury is expected to keep Kispert out four-to-six weeks. The Wizards open their season Wednesday at Indiana.

Kispert started 36 of the 77 games he appeared in last season, averaging 8.2 points per game.

Gaye named to Lombardi watch list

Edmonds-Woodway High School graduate Ali Gaye, now a senior defensive end on the LSU football team, was one of 90 players named to the Lombardi Award’s midseason watch list. The Lombardi Award is given annually to the nation’s top college offensive or defensive lineman,

Through seven games Gaye has 15 tackles, one sack and two forced fumbles for the Tigers.

Silvertips acquire forward

The Everett Silvertips added to their forward ranks by acquiring 18-year-old Olen Shtrom from the Medicine Hat Tigers on Tuesday. The deal saw Everett acquire Shtrom along with an eighth-round prospects draft pick in 2023 and a ninth rounder in 2024 in exchange for 18-year-old goaltender Evan May and a fifth rounder in 2025.

Shtrom, who measures in at 5-foot-10 and 176 pounds and lists Gilbert, Arizona, as his hometown, was a third-round pick in the 2019 prospects draft. In 89 games over three seasons with the Tigers he posted 14 goals and 23 assists, including four assists in seven games this season.

May, an 11th-round pick in 2019 out of Nanaimo, B.C., was serving as Everett’s No. 3 goaltender. He saw 21 minutes over the course of two games with the Tips the past two seasons and had yet to dress for a game this season.
