Tips add defenseman

The Everett Silvertips added a defenseman to their roster Friday when they called up 18-year-old Trevor Bauer.

Bauer, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound native of Torrington, Alberta, was added to Everett’s 50-player protected list earlier this season. A third-round pick in the 2005 bantam draft by the Prince George Cougars, Bauer appeared in 22 games for Prince George last season without scoring. He began this season with the Cougars, appearing in six games, but was reassigned and subsequently dropped.

Bauer’s presence provides some relief on Everett’s blue line. With Shayne Brown out indefinitely with a hip-flexor injury, the Tips had just six available defensemen.

Scouting report

Tonight is the third of eight meetings this season between Everett and Tri-City. The teams split the previous two matchups, with the Tips prevailing in a 7-6 shootout thriller the last time they met on Oct. 28 in Everett.

Tri-City (14-7-0-2 going into Friday night’s game at Chilliwack) is considered one of the leading contenders in the Western Conference. However, the Americans hit a bit of a bump lately, losing three of their past four heading into Friday.

Tri-City already had one of the league’s most dangerous offensive attacks when they acquired 20-year-old center Mitch Fadden (six assists in five games with Tri-City) two weeks ago in a trade with Lethbridge. He joins fellow overage forwards Jason Reese (14 goals, 19 assists) and Taylor Procyshen (10 goals, 17 assists) to give Tri-City the best collection of scoring overage forwards in the league.

Tri-City’s weakness is on defense, where the Americans have had depth issues, and 19-year-old goaltender Chet Pickard (11-7-0-2, 2.92 goals against average, .897 save percentage) has yet to reach the levels he achieved last season.
