EVERETT – The Everett Silvertips today announced the signing of 1995-born forward Logan Aasman to a WHL Education Contract. Aasman made his WHL debut for the Silvertips during Sunday evening’s game in Kelowna.
Aasman, 17, earned his first WHL call-up with the Silvertips last week after being placed on the club’s protected list. He played his first major junior game on Sunday, skating mostly on a line with Brayden Low and Lucas Grayson against the Kelowna Rockets.
At the midget level with the Southeast Tigers in his hometown of Medicine Hat, Alberta this season, the 6-foot-4, 185-pound winger has scored 12 goals and totaled 18 points to go with 32 penalty minutes in 21 games. He also appeared in one Junior-A game with Drumheller of the AJHL this year. Logan is the younger brother of former WHLer Ryan Aasman, who played for five different WHL teams between 2008 and 2012.
“We’re happy that Logan has decided to commit to our program,” said General Manager Garry Davidson. “He’s a big forward with skill and good hockey sense who we see as a promising WHL prospect for our club.”
The Silvertips return to action Friday night against Spokane at Comcast Arena. Opening faceoff for Everett’s first game of 2013 is set for 7:35 pm as the ‘Tips face the Chiefs for the fifth time this season.
Season tickets, mini-game packages and single-game tickets for the Silvertips’ 10th Anniversary season at Comcast Arena are on sale now. For more information call 425-252-5100.
