LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Everett Silvertips alum Alex Swetlikoff will be attending Vegas Golden Knights Development Camp for the week of July 11.
Swetlikoff, who played in his final season of junior eligibility in 2021-22, led the Silvertips in scoring with 33 goals and 51 assists for 84 points in 68 games- a marker that finished tenth overall in the Western Hockey League. He and Jacob Wright are the only two Everett players to appear in every regular season contest this year. His 17 powerplay goals were second-most in the WHL behind only Red Deer’s Ben King, while adding 14 powerplay assists. Swetlikoff also registered a goal and assist while shorthanded, logging key minutes at all three strengths for Everett.
A pre-season acquisition in a trade from Kelowna, Swetlikoff co-earned the Coach’s Award with Ronan Seeley at the Silvertips Team Awards on Apr. 8. His prowess on face-offs, shot generation (led the team with 273 shots on goal) and scorer’s touch contributed to his successful overager campaign.
Swetlikoff joins fellow Silvertip Ben Hemmerling at Development Camp. Hemmerling was selected by Vegas 177th overall in the sixth round of the NHL Draft on Friday, July 8. Swetlikoff will wear the number 37 at camp. Hemmerling will wear number 63.
