Liwiski, Browne officially suspended, Hart shuts out Russians

The Everett Silvertips on Monday evening officially announced what I reported Saturday night as the organization has suspended 16-year-old rookie forwards Mark Liwiski and Ethan Browne.

Liwiski, a third-round bantam pick in 2013, was found in violation of team rules and sent home to Manitoba. Brown, Everett’s first-rounder that same year requested the chance to go back to back home to Alberta.

Head coach Dennis Williams didn’t indicate to me Saturday that Browne was being suspended, only that he requested to go home. However, the official statement says both players are suspended.

I don’t know what the future holds for each player, but we will be keeping close tabs as the situation continues. Everett had high hopes for both players so losing both at this stage of their careers – even if it’s temporary – was certainly not part of the plan.

In other news, Carter Hart earned the start and the 7-0 shutout for Team WHL against the Russians Monday night in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, in the first of two exhibition games between the teams.

Here’s a video of Hart doing Hart things:

Hart saved all 20 shots he saw as Team WHL drubbed the Russians. There were plenty of offensive stars as Kole Lind finished with two goals and an assist, while Cody Glass, Dillon Dube and Brett Howden each had a goal and an assist. Kale Clague had three assists and Michael Rasmussen had two.

It’s Hart’s third time competing in the event for Team WHL.

Game 2 is Tuesday in Swift Current, Saskatchewan.
