USA Hockey selects Silvertips’ Varady, Maxwell

EVERETT — Two members of the Everett Silvertips have been summoned by USA Hockey.

Associate head coach Jay Varady and left wing Tyler Maxwell were each selected to join USA Hockey in the buildup to the 2010 World Junior Hockey Championships.

Varady was chosen to be part of the U.S. team’s coaching staff for World Juniors, which take place Dec. 26-Jan. 5 in Saskatoon and Regina, Saskatchewan. Varady will serve as the team’s video coordinator.

Varady will also serve as one of the coaches during the team’s evaluation camp, which is Aug. 6-15 in Lake Placid, N.Y. This is the second straight year Varady will help choose the U.S. roster.

“It’s an honor to represent your country and any time you get the opportunity to do so, you jump at it,” Varady said in a press release. “I look forward to working with (Dean Blais, the team’s head coach) and supporting USA Hockey.”

Meanwhile, Maxwell was one of 43 players selected to attend the evaluation camp.

Maxwell, an 18-year-old from Manhattan Beach, Calif., had 22 goals and 24 assists in 57 games last season as a rookie. He also scored five goals in five games during the playoffs.

Maxwell was one of 24 forwards chosen to compete for approximately 13 roster spots. He was one of three players selected from the WHL, joining Spokane forwards Mitch Wahl and Tyler Johnson.
