Silvertips add Lucas Cullen as affiliate player

The former Calgary Hitmen was playing for West Kelowna in BCHL before joining Everett

The Silvertips added some depth for their playoff push, as Everett announced on Wednesday it recalled affiliate player Lucas Cullen from the West Kelowna Warriors of the British Columbia Hockey League.

The Kelowna, British Columbia native scored twice for the Warriors, but West Kelowna fell, 6-3, to the Wenatchee Wild in Game 7 of a best-of-7 BCHL quarterfinal playoff series on Monday. The Warriors dropped the final two games after leading the series, 3-2.

Cullen was second on West Kelowna with 10 points and first with seven goals in series against the Wild.

The 19-year-old center was over a point-per-game player for West Kelowna this season with 50 points (26 goals and 24 assists) in 49 games.

Cullen was drafted by the Calgary Hitmen in the fifth round of the 2014 bantam draft and recorded nine points in 48 games spanning over three seasons before being released.
