Community roundup: Rep. Larsen attends end of World Cup

Plus, the Silvertips sign a prospect forward to a WHL standard player agreement.

Rick Larsen got his chance to be part of the World Cup.

Everett’s member of the U.S. House of Representatives was part of the Presidential Delegation to the State of Qatar that attended the closing ceremonies of the 2022 FIFA World Cup on Sunday in Doha. The U.S., along with Canada and Mexico, is hosting the next World Cup in 2026.

Larsen was one of six individuals who were part of the delegation. He was selected because of his role as co-chair of the Congressional Soccer Caucus.

Larsen played a small role in helping get Seattle as one of the host cities for the 2026 World Cup.

Silvertips sign prospect Schaefer

The Everett Silvertips signed prospect forward Clarke Schaefer to a WHL standard player agreement, thus committing the player’s future to the team.

Schaefer, a 15-year-old native of Spruce Grove, Alberta, went unselected in the 2022 prospects draft. The 5-foot-10, 158-pound Schaefer attended training camp with the Tips as an invite and was subsequently added to Everett’s 50-player protected list. Schaefer, who is the younger brother of Seattle Thunberbirds star Reid Schaefer, is playing this season with the Northern Alberta Xtreme under-17 team, with which he has eight goals and 13 assists in 20 games.

Schaefer is the sixth 2007-born player to sign with the Tips. He is first eligible to join the team full-time next season.
