Silvertips notebook: Everett acquires forward Patton from Royals

The overager posted 49 points last season for Victoria; Everett extends its lease with Angel of the Winds Arena.

EVERETT — The Everett Silvertips added some offensive punch to their lineup for the 2023-24 season in the form of a new overager.

Everett added to its overage candidates by acquiring forward Teague Patton from the Victoria Royals in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2026 prospects draft.

Patton, who turns 20 on Dec. 15, is a native of Kelowna, B.C. The 5-foot-9, 169-pounder was Victoria’s second-leading scorer last season when he posted 16 goals and 33 assists in 68 games. The 49 points would have ranked fifth on the Tips.

Patton becomes a front-runner to snag one of Everett’s three overage roster slots for the upcoming season. The Tips had three 2003-born players on the roster when last season ended, those being forward Vincent Lamanna, defenseman Ty Gibson and goaltender Tyler Palmer. None of those three are projected to play professionally in 2023-24.

“Teague brings healthy competition to our lineup,” Everett general manager Dennis Williams said in a press release. “He’s had individual success in Victoria and has been in a leadership role. We were looking to add another 20-year-old to elevate our upcoming camp and provide good, healthy competition. Teague has a good opportunity to step in and grow with our team.”

Players officially report for Everett’s training camp on Aug. 30.

Tips extend lease for five years

The Tips have extended their lease with Everett’s Angel of the Winds Arena for another five years, committing the team to the arena through the 2027-28 season.

Everett has called the arena now known as Angel of the Winds home for the entirety of the franchise’s 20-year existence. Last season the Tips ranked third in the 22-team WHL in attendance with an average of 5,840 fans over 34 home dates.

“We’re thrilled to commit ourselves to a longer stay at Angel of the Winds Arena,” Tips chief operating officer Zoran Rajcic said in a press release. “We’ve seen strong attendance numbers and tremendous community support from day one all the way through 20 seasons of operation.”

Roest on Hockey Canada radar

Everett center Austin Roest is on Hockey Canada’s radar for the 2024 World Junior Hockey Championships after being one of 16 WHL players included in the organization’s Program of Excellence summer meetings, which were conducted virtually.

Roest, a 19-year-old from Coldstream, B.C., was a third-round pick by Everett in the 2019 prospects draft. Last season the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Roest had a breakout campaign with the Tips as he racked up 32 goals and 46 assists in 60 games to finish as the team’s second-leading scorer. He was subsequently selected in the sixth round of this year’s NHL draft by the Nashville Predators.

The 2024 World Juniors take place Dec. 26-Jan. 5 in Gothenburg, Sweden. Canada is the two-time defending gold medalist, with former Everett defenseman Olen Zellweger being a part of both teams.
