Silvertips trade Wright to Calgary for Quiring and picks

The trade eases Everett’s crunch of 20-year-olds and brings in some needed size to the roster.

EVERETT — The Everett Silvertips eased their overager crunch Friday, and they added a little size up front in the process.

Everett trimmed its roster to four 20-year-olds by trading overage winger Jacob Wright to the Calgary Hitmen in exchange for 19-year-old winger Steel Quiring along with a sixth-round prospects draft pick in 2023 and a third rounder in 2024.

Everett had five quality overage candidates in forwards Wright, Jackson Berezowski and Ryan Hofer and defensemen Dylan Anderson and Aidan Sutter, with only three roster slots available. The trade gets Everett down to four, with the deadline to trim to three coming on Oct. 10.

Wright spent three-plus seasons as a productive member of the Tips. The Langley, B.C., native went unselected in the WHL prospects draft and was later added to Everett’s 50-player protected list as a free agent. In 141 games with the Tips the 5-foot-10, 171-pounder tallied 34 goals and 37 assists. Last season he had 22 goals and 25 assists in 68 games as a key contributor in Everett winning the U.S. Division championship.

However, when Hofer was returned to the Tips by the NHL’s Washington Capitals earlier this week, it likely triggered Wright’s trade. Berezowski is Everett’s captain and leading returning goal scorer, while Hofer is an alternate captain and the team’s top returning center. Given the roster’s configuration it was unlikely the Tips would keep three overage forwards.

In return, Everett received a veteran forward in Quiring who at 6-foot-2 and 189 pounds adds some needed size to the roster. The Vernon, B.C., native was a fifth-round pick in the 2018 prospects draft by the Kelowna Rockets. In 89 games over the course of five seasons with Kelowna and Calgary he totalled 14 goals and 16 assists. Last season he had 12 goals and 13 assists in 59 contests.
