Silvertips add 12 players in WHL bantam draft

The 2005-born group will be eligible to play for Everett beginning in the 2021-22 season.

Here are the 12 players (seven forwards, five defensemen) selected by the Everett Silvertips in Wednesday’s WHL bantam draft. The draft was for players born in 2005, and they are first eligible to play for the Tips in the 2021-22 season (players listed with their position, height, weight, hometown, statistics and a quote from Everett head scout Mike Fraser):


Fourth round (81st overall): Hoyt Stanley, defenseman, 5-foot-7, 134 pounds, West Vancouver, B.C.

Stats: Seven goals and 29 assists in 29 games for St. George’s School Bantam Prep.

Fraser: “From where he was in September to where he is now, it’s incredible how he’s trending in the right direction. He has a good frame and I think he will grow more. He has good hockey sense, he sees the ice really well, moves pucks well, and he plays with a little jam to game. I think he’ll contribute offensively and be a good defender as well.”


Fourth round (87th overall): Roan Woodward, center, 5-foot-8, 136 pounds, Nipawin, Saskatchewan.

Stats: 42 goals and 58 assists in 31 games for North East Wolfpack BAA.

Fraser: “He’s a real exciting player, he’s a very offensive guy. One thing I really like about his game is he plays quick and he’s an electric player. He can create offense, he’s good in tight spaces, and he also has the ability to put the puck in the net.”


Seventh round (152nd overall): Kyan Grouette, right wing, 5-foot-9, 150 pounds, Dauphin, Manitoba.

Stats: 36 goals and 51 assists in 36 games for Parkland Rangers B1AAA.

Fraser: “I think he’s a warrior, he really battles and competes, but he also brings a real solid skill-set to the table.”


Eighth round (172nd overall): Matthew Paszkiewicz, center, 5-foot-5, 132 pounds, Calgary, Alberta.

Stats: 23 goals and 27 assists in 33 games with Calgary NWCAA Flames BAAA.

Fraser: “He’s an undersized guy who plays quick, is very creative, very smart, and good in all three zones.”


Eighth round (174th overall): Luke Schraeder, defenseman, 5-foot-8, 139 pounds, Kelowna, B.C.

Stats: Three goals and 19 assists in 30 games with Okanagan Rockets BAAA.

Fraser: “He has some growing to do, but he moves pucks well, he has a very calm demeanor on the ice, he retrieves pucks and makes good passes.”


Ninth round (194th overall): Eric Jamieson, defenseman, 5-foot-9, 135 pounds, Calgary, Alberta.

Stats: Five goals and 17 assists in 30 games with Edge School Bantam Prep.

Fraser: “He’s a guy who has a nice brain to him on the back end. You’ll notice the trend, he’s another guy who’s come a long way between September and now.”


Ninth round (196th overall): Carter Dittmer, right wing, 5-foot-10, 145 pounds, Brandon, Manitoba.

Stats: 42 goals and 20 assists in 33 games with Brandon Wheat Kings B1AAA.

Fraser: “He’s got very good hands and very good offensive awareness. His feet are the part of the game he’s had to work on, and his improvement has been impressive.”


Tenth round (207th overall): Logan Greenough, defenseman, 5-foot-7, 123 pounds, Calgary, Alberta.

Stats: Three goals and 16 assists in 32 games with Calgary NWCAA Flames BAAA.

Fraser: “He’s another guy who’s undersized, but should grow more. He’s very calm, cool and collected, he makes quick plays and sees the ice well.”


Tenth round (215th overall): Chase Simon, left wing, 5-foot-4, 126 pounds, Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Stats: 31 goals and 36 assists in 36 games with Winnipeg Warriors B1AAA.

Fraser: “He plays that Everett style: very quick, able to make plays, able to think, able to get himself out of trouble and create offense.”


Eleventh round (225th overall): Maddux Martin, forward 5-foot-6, 135 pounds, Kelowna, B.C.

Stats: 12 goals and six assists in 16 games with North Zone Kings BAA.

Fraser: “He played in a tier II league, but our scouts say he has high-end skill, and he put up very good numbers.”


Twelfth round (230th overall): Wyatt Stefan, left wing, 5-foot-11, 150 pounds, Laguna Beach, California.

Stats: Zero goals and seven assists in 12 games with Detroit Little Caesars 14U.

Fraser: “He’s kind of a straight-line winger, and he has good bloodlines as his dad, Patrick Stefan, played in the NHL.”


Thirteenth round (233rd overall): Truman Wurst, defenseman, 5-foot-10, 143 pounds, Thornton, Colorado.

Stats: Nine goals and seven assists in 24 games with Colorado Thunderbirds 14U.

Fraser: “He’s a guy we discussed for the U.S. draft, so we decided to move him over to our main draft list. He’s sort of an all-situational defenseman.”
