Silvertips ship Snohomish County native to Moose Jaw

Everett acquires sixth-round pick in 2022 draft in return

The Silvertips roster just lost a little bit of local flavor.

Everett announced on Monday it traded Luke Ormsby, a Monroe native, to the Moose Jaw Warriors in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick in 2022.

Silvertips general manager Garry Davidson said the decision was two-fold. Moose Jaw presents an opportunity for Ormsby to take on a bigger role and it opens up more ice time for Everett’s younger players.

“When you’re looking at the short and long term, you have to make some decisions concerning the overall look of our team,” Davidson said. “Luke was a team player and a solid part of our team, as well as a great citizen. But it’s a part of the league.”

Ormsby, 19, got off to a slow start this season with a nagging lower body injury, but he’s picked it up as of late, owning an active four-game point streak. He boasts 24 points and in 150 career regular season games between Everett and Seattle, where he spent the first two seasons of his career.

Davidson said there were a couple of teams interested in Ormsby. The Silvertips lose depth with Ormsby, but partly alleviate what will be a difficult decision next year in setttling on three overage players. Forwards Connor Dewar, Riley Sutter, Akash Bains, Bronson Sharp and the newly acquired Max Patterson as well as defensemen Jake Christiansen and Wyatte Wylie will be 20-year-olds next season and although many might secure NHL contracts and stick in the American Hockey League, some tough decisions will ultimately be made.
