EVERETT, Wash. – The Everett Silvertips (@WHLSilvertips), proud member of the Western Hockey League, and general manager Garry Davidson announced today that forward Ethan Browne has been recalled from the Sherwood Park Kings (AMHL). Browne is currently categorized on the Silvertips roster as an affiliated player.
Browne, a 2001-born forward, was selected by the Silvertips in the first round (14th overall) of the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft. Suiting up for the Silvertips during the 2016 preseason, he also helped guide Team Alberta to a championship at the Western Canada U16 Challenge Cup in October, earned three points in four tournament games, and buried a goal in the Gold Medal victory.
The 5-foot-10, 180 pound forward posted 77 points (39g-38a) in 36 games last season for the Sherwood Park Flyers Bantam AAA (AMBHL) squad, trailing only Peyton Krebs – the WHL’s first overall selection – in league scoring. He was tied for second in league scoring, ranked second in goals, and was third in assists while earning Sherwood Park’s Most Valuable Player award.
Browne earned league awards for outstanding forward and most sportsmanlike player, helped guide the Bantam AAA Flyers to a 31-3-2 regular season record and sweeps through the first three rounds of the postseason, where he racked up 23 points (10g-13a) in 10 games to lead the league in playoff scoring.
The season prior, Browne was named Most Valuable Player of the Sherwood Park Bantam AA Sawmill Sabres and he seized the league scoring title with 114 points (58g-56a) in 32 games, leading the scoring race by 28 points.
