Silvertips resolve overager crunch, waive Anderson

Everett made the move to reach the WHL-mandated three 20-year-old maximun.

EVERETT — The Everett Silvertips have settled their overage situation, and Dylan Anderson is the odd-man out.

Everett got down to its WHL-mandated three 20-year-olds by waiving veteran defenseman Anderson, the team announced Friday.

The move means forwards Jackson Berezowski and Ryan Hofer and defenseman Aidan Sutter will serve as the Tips’ overagers this season.

Anderson, a native of Langley, B.C., was selected by Everett in the fourth round of the 2017 prospects draft. He played in six different seasons with the Tips, including three full campaigns from 2019-22. In 143 games he tallied five goals and 26 assists.

With Berezowski being the team’s captain and top goal scorer, and with Hofer being Everett’s top center and an NHL draft pick, the last overage spot came down to a choice between Sutter or Anderson. The two are mirror images of one another, being near matches in size, experience and production. The Tips opted to go with the left-handed Sutter over the right-handed Anderson.

“We as an organization had to make some difficult decisions to get our roster where it needs to be,” Everett general manager and head coach Dennis Williams said in a press release. “Dylan and Jacob (Wright, an overage winger who was earlier traded to Calgary), they’re great players but they’re even better people and unbelievable teammates. Every day they have embodied what it means to be a Silvertip with the way that they work and the way they carry themselves. Our program is better having had them in it, and we wish them nothing but the best in the next step of their hockey career.”

Anderson has cleared WHL waivers. It’s yet to be determined where he plays this season.

Everett’s overagers are off to fast starts this season. Going into Friday Berezowski had five goals and three assists in six games, Hofer had three goals and three assists in five games, and Sutter had four assists in five contests.
