Everett Silvertips Vice President / General Manager Doug Soetaert announced Saturday that the Silvertips have traded winger Campbell Elynuik to the Regina Pat’s in exchange for a 6th round draft pick in 2013.
Elynuik, 18, played in 71 games with the club over the past two seasons. During an injury-shortened 2010-11 season, the 6-4, 190-pound winger scored three goals, assisted on two more and registered 54 penalty minutes while skating in just 28 games. Elynuik, who hails from Calgary, Alberta, recorded a career high 67 penalty minutes in 43 games two seasons ago and also has skated in 13 career WHL playoff games.
He also has been invited to the Philadelphia Flyers’s rookie camp.
“With the depth of our forwards we felt we needed to make room for our younger players,” Soetaert said. “We would like to thank Campbell for his contributions to the Everett Silvertips and wish him all the best in the future.”
The Silvertips finish training camp with the Green and Grey game at 1:00 pm on Sunday August 28th. Fans are reminded to bring a can of non perishable food for the food bank.
