Silvertips notebook: Wolf invited to world junior showcase

And Everett signs a 16-year-old goaltending prospect.

EVERETT — Everett Silvertips goaltender Dustin Wolf was one of 43 players invited to USA Hockey’s 2020 World Junior Summer Showcase, which takes place July 24-Aug. 1 in Plymouth, Michigan. The showcase serves as one of the evaluation tools for determining the U.S. team for the 2021 World Junior Hockey Championships, which are scheduled to take place Dec. 26-Jan. 5 in Edmonton and Red Deer, Alberta. Wolf was one of four goalies selected for the camp.

Wolf, who was named the Canadian Hockey League’s Goaltender of the Year, was one of three goaltenders on the U.S. team for 2020 World Juniors in the Czech Republic. He appeared in one game, making 17 saves in a 6-3 victory over Germany.

The 19-year-old Wolf is one of nine players returning from last year’s team, which was eliminated in the quarterfinals. Among the other returners is Spencer Knight, who served as the team’s primary goaltender.

Tips sign goaltending prospect

The Tips have signed goaltending prospect Evan May to a WHL Standard Player Agreement.

May, who hails from Nanaimo, B.C., was an 11th-round selection in the 2019 bantam draft. May, who is entering his 16-year-old season, measures 6-foot and 155 pounds. He played last season for the North Island Silvertips of the BCMML, with whom he was 7-11-2 with a 3.59 goals-against average in 20 games.
