EVERETT — A busy trade season for the Everett Silvertips concluded at Tuesday’s WHL trade deadline as the Tips made two more minor deals, sending winger Steel Quiring to the Regina Pats and acquiring prospect goaltender Donavan Bodnar from the Portland Winterhawks.
The 19-year-old Quiring was traded to Regina in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2026 WHL prospects draft. Everett acquired the 17-year-old Bodnar along with a conditional sixth-round pick in the 2024 draft, sending Portland a fourth rounder in 2024 in return.
Quiring was acquired by Everett early in the season from Calgary in the deal that sent overage winger Jacob Wright to the Hitmen. The 6-foot-2, 188-pound native of Vernon, B.C., appeared in 30 games with the Tips, registering three goals and three assists.
Bodnar was originally a seventh-round pick by Portland in the 2020 prospects draft. The 6-foot, 161-pound native of West St. Paul, Manitoba, is currently with the Raiders Jr. Hockey Club of the Junior B Manitoba Major Junior Hockey League. In three games he’s 1-2 with a 3.28 goals against average and .901 save percentage.
Everett made its big splash Sunday night when the Tips dealt defenseman Olen Zellweger and center Ryan Hofer to the Kamloops Blazers for an enormous package that included four players and 10 draft picks. In total Everett executed six trades involving 12 players and 16 draft picks over the past three days.
