EVERETT — Dennis Williams didn’t waste any time executing his new duties with the Everett Silvertips.

Williams, Everett’s head coach who was named the team’s full-time general manager Monday, needed just two days to execute his first trade as the Tips acquired overage defenseman Jonny Lambos from the Brandon Wheat Kings on Wednesday in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2023 WHL draft.

Lambos, a native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, was originally a third-round pick by Victoria in the 2016 draft. The 5-foot-10, 175-pounder appeared in 126 games with the Wheat Kings the past three seasons, registering five goals and 14 assists. Last season he had two assists in 21 games as Brandon claimed the East Division title.

“His ability is a great fit for the right side of our blueline, and experience in winning an East Division title last season brings a great example of commitment for our younger players to follow,” Williams said in a press release. “We’ll lean on Jonny to serve in a role as a leader, on and off the ice.”

The addition of Lambos gives Everett six candidates to fill its three 20-year-old roster slots for the 2021-22 season, the others being forwards Gage Goncalves, Hunter Campbell and Jalen Price, defenseman Zach Ashton and goaltender Dustin Wolf. However, Goncalves and Wolf are expected to play professionally next season.
