Everett Silvertips training camp is complete, meaning the team has moved into the next phase of preparations for the 2018-19 WHL season.
First, here’s the players who remain with the team following training camp. There’s 30 in total. Here they are, grouped by position and listed with birth years:
Akash Bains (99), Jackson Berezowski (02), Dawson Butt (00), Connor Dewar (99), Martin Fasko-Rudas (00), Gage Goncalves (01), Bryce Kindopp (99), Peter Melcher (01), Conrad Mitchell (01), Brayden Morrison (02), Luke Ormsby (99), Sean Richards (98), Bronson Sharp (99), Riley Sutter (99), Reece Vitelli (01).
Dylan Anderson (02), Jake Christiansen (99), Gianni Fairbrother (00), Ty Gibson (03), Sahvan Khaira (98), Alex Moar (01), Jameson Murray (99), Ronan Seeley (02), Ian Walker (00), Kyle Walker (00), Wyatte Wylie (99), Olen Zellweger (03).
Danton Belluk (01), Blake Lyda (02), Dustin Wolf (01).
No surprises here. Everyone’s here who’s expected to be here, and no one unexpected remains. The goal will be to get down to about 24 players — approximately 14 forwards, eight defensemen and two goaltenders — by the start of the season. Two of the players still around are 15-year-old defensemen Olen Zellweger and Ty Gibson, who are too young to play in the league this year. That means Everett really doesn’t have a lot of moves it needs to make to get down to its final roster.
It also means Everett will probably not want to make many moves until after NHL training camps are completed. Everett has four players who will be heading to NHL camps next week, meaning they’ll be unavailable for at least part of the preseason. They are:
Connor Dewar, Minnesota Wild
Riley Sutter, Washington Capitals
Wyatte Wylie, Philadelphia Flyers
Jake Christiansen, Calgary Flames
Dewar, Sutter and Wylie were all selected in this year’s NHL draft, while Christiansen received an invitation to attend Calgary’s camp as a free agent.
