Silvertips sign Seattle native Brendan Lee to contract

The 2002-born forward impressed during the team’s recent training camp

The Everett Silvertips added another young, skilled offensive player to the mix Wednesday when they announced the signing of Seattle native Brendan Lee.

Lee, a 2002-born forward, was listed by the Silvertips in June and invited to training camp, where he impressed general manager Garry Davidson and the rest of the Silvertips’ scouting staff.

“I think he has the potential to be a quality offensive guy in the Western Hockey League at some point,” Davidson said.

Lee joins Wyatte Wylie (Everett) and Dawson Butt (Buckley) as the Washington natives on the Silvertips’ roster. He’s also the second United States-born player to sign in as many days; Everett inked goaltender Braden Holt to a contract Tuesday.

Lee, 17, played the past two seasons for the Colorado Thunderbirds U-16 and midget teams, but grew up in the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle. He was a prolific point producer for the Thunderbirds’ midget squad last season, totaling 28 goals and 34 assists in 46 games, a 1.35 points-per-game clip.

“He can hammer pucks, he’s a shooter,” Silvertips head coach Dennis Williams said. “From what I’ve seen, offensively he should give us some spark there in terms of his knack around the net. He’s not afraid to get there and he’s scored some goals the last few days (in training camp).

“Obviously we need to round out his game without the puck, it lacks a lot of detail in terms of compete and the tracking and reloading. But a lot of times they haven’t had to do it, so it’s all new.”
