Silvertips sign 3 prospects ahead of preseason tournament

Beck Boiteau, Rhys Jamieson and Finn Werner all ink WHL scholarship and development agreements with Everett.

EVERETT — The Everett Silvertips announced the signing of three prospects to WHL scholarship and development agreements in advance of this weekend’s Everett Silvertips Preseason Classic.

Seventeen-year-old goaltender Beck Boiteau was an eighth-round pick in the 2021 WHL prospects draft. The 6-foot, 172-pound native of Medicine Hat, Alberta, appeared in 15 games with the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the AEHL U18 league last season, going 6-6-1 with a 3.53 goals against average and .902 save percentage.

Fifteen-year-old forward Rhys Jamieson was a second-round pick in this year’s prospects draft. The 5-foot-10, 164-pounder from Calgary, Alberta, spent last season with the Calgary Bisons of the AEHL U15 league, notching 34 goals and 37 assists in 34 games as he was named a second-team All-Star. He added seven goals and 10 assists in nine postseason contests.

Fifteen-year-old goaltender Finn Werner was a third-round pick in this year’s prospects draft. The 5-foot-10, 154-pound native of St. Albert, Alberta, played last season with the St. Albert Sabres of the AEHL U15 league, with whom he went 21-1-0 with a 2.23 goals against average and .923 save percentage en route to being named the league’s Top Goaltender.

By signing agreements with Everett, Boiteau, Jamieson and Werner committed their futures to the organization. They also became eligible to play in preseason games, which begin this weekend when the Tips host the Tri-City Americans on Friday, Seattle Thunderbirds on Saturday and Wenatchee Wild on Sunday.

Signing Boiteau and Werner gives Everett strong goaltender depth in its system. The Tips now have one goaltender signed for each age group: Tyler Palmer (20), Ethan Chadwick (19), Donavan Bodnar (18), Boiteau (17), Corbin Sanderman (16) and Werner (15).

Jamieson and Werner signing means Everett has inked its top five picks from this year’s prospects draft. They join first rounders Brek Liske and Caine Wilke and fourth rounder Lukas Lima.

Everett made one other move, trading 19-year-old forward Bilal Noori to Swift Current in exchange for a conditional ninth-round pick in the 2027 prospects draft. Noori, a WHL veteran who was dropped by Calgary following last season, was selected by Everett in the ninth round of this year’s prospects draft.
