Silvertips sign two Euros

The Everett Silvertips will have two new European players in the upcoming season after signing Czech forward Dominik Rymon and Swiss goaltender Tim Metzger to standard player agreements.

Rymon, who’s entering his 18-year-old season, was selected in the first round (57th overall) of the CHL import draft, which was held July 1. He had 27 goals and 19 assists in 37 games with HC Karlovy Vary in the Czechia U20 league last season.

Metzger, who’s entering his 17-year-old season, was taken in the second round (117th overall) of this year’s import draft. He was 3-7 with a 3.23 goals against average with GCK Lions of the Swiss U20 league last season.

Rymon and Metzger replace Finnish winger Niko Huuhtanen and Czech center Michal Gut, who are expected to play professionally in their home countries this season.

Baker receives Grand Prix placements

Olympic ice dancer and Kamiak High School graduate Jean-Luc Baker and his partner Kaitlin Hawayek have received their placements for the 2022 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series. Hawayek and Baker will represent the U.S. at Skate America, which takes place Oct. 21-23 in Norwood, Massachusetts, and at Grand Prix Espoo, which is in Finland on Nov. 25-27.

Hawayek and Baker finished 11th in ice dancing at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.

EvCC hires Hessler as new baseball coach

Everett Community College has promoted pitching coach Keith Hessler to the head coaching position of the school’s powerhouse baseball program. Hessler, who pitched in the majors from 2015-16, spent the past two seasons as the Trojans’ pitching coach, helping Everett win two Northwest Athletic Conference North Region titles. Last season the Trojans finished second in NWAC in ERA at 2.32 en route to placing third at the NWAC tournament.

Hessler succeeds Parker Guinn, who departed to take a coaching position with an unnamed NCAA Division I school.

Moon places third at Mid-Amateur

Lynnwood’s Brian Moon finished third at the Washington Men’s Mid-Amateur Championship golf tournament for amateur players aged 25 and older, which was held last Wednesday and Thursday at The Home Course in Dupont. Moon finished with a two-round score of 3-under 141 to finish in a three-way tie, three strokes behind winner Tom Brandes of Bellevue.

Everett’s Jacob Rohde finished tied for sixth at 2-under.
