The 2004-born forward was Everett’s third-round pick in the 2019 WHL bantam draft.

EVERETT — The Everett Silvertips signed 2004-born forward prospect Ben Hemmerling to a WHL Standard Player Agreement, the team announced Thursday.

“Ben is a very exciting, young player who has the capabilities to mold himself as a very exciting Silvertip to watch for years to come,” Everett general manager Garry Davidson said on the team’s website. “He possesses head, hands, feet and work ethic that will allow him to play a very skilled and high-tempo game with the opportunity to drive a lot of the offense.”

The Sherwood Park, Alberta, native also played in five games for the Northern Alberta Xtreme Bantam Prep squad and tallied one goal and three assists.
