DRAFT RECAP: Silvertips pick up nine players in 2022 WHL Prospects Draft

EVERETT, Wash. — The Everett Silvertips have added nine prospects to the organization after the completion of the 2022 Western Hockey League Prospects Draft.

“This was a challenging scouting season with two Prospects Drafts and two U.S. Drafts in short order coming out of a Covid-shortened season,” commented Silvertips director of player personnel Mike Fraser, acknowledging the 2021 WHL Drafts held just five months ago in December. “Our scouting staff did a tremendous job identifying and evaluating our new prospects. We’re excited about adding this new wave of Silvertips, all of whom fit how we like to play the game and our team culture.”

Everett’s first selection came 20th-overall in the first round, picking forward Julien Maze out of OHA Edmonton U15 Prep. Maze’s teammate, Ethan Makokis, was taken by the Tips in the fifth round with the 108th overall pick. In total, the Silvertips drafted four forwards, three defensemen and two goaltenders in the Prospects Draft.

“We look forward to seeing them all in training camp in just a few months,” Fraser added.
