Silvertips’ Gage Goncalves now on NHL Central Scouting’s radar

The 2nd-year forward joins Ronan Seeley and Michal Gut on Central Scouting’s ‘Players to Watch’ list.

After being omitted in the preseason, 18-year-old Silvertips forward Gage Goncalves was added to the NHL Central Scouting Bureau’s players to watch list in its November update on Wednesday, joining two other Everett players that were on the initial list in October — defenseman Ronan Seeley and rookie import center Michal Gut.

Goncalves, who is in his second year of draft eligibility, has assumed a top-line role this season and has developed into a point-per-game player, with 15 points (eight goals and seven assists) in 14 games this season.

Gut, 17, has posted 11 points in 15 games this year. Seeley, 17, has three points in 17 games this season.
