Silvertips Acquire 2001-Born Defenseman Jonny Lambos from the Brandon Wheat Kings in Exchange for a Seventh Round Selection in the 2023 WHL Draft

EVERETT, Wash. – The Everett Silvertips, eight-time U.S. Division champions and two-time Western Conference champions of the Western Hockey League, has acquired 2001-born defenseman Jonny Lambos from the Brandon Wheat Kings in exchange for a seventh round selection in the 2023 WHL Draft, Silvertips general manager and head coach Dennis Williams announced today.

“We’re excited to introduce Jonny to our lineup as a veteran defenseman who’s enjoyed success in the Western Hockey League,” said Williams. “His ability is a great fit for the right side of our blueline, and experience in winning an East Division title last season brings a great example of commitment for our younger players to follow. We’ll lean on Jonny to serve in a role as a leader, on and off the ice, and look forward to his arrival in training camp.”

Jonny Lambos (46) delivers a hit against the Moose Jaw Warriors.

Lambos, 20, last season suited up in 21 games for the Wheat Kings and earned a pair of assists with a +1 rating, helping Brandon capture the East Division title in the coronavirus pandemic shortened season with a record of 20-2-0-1 with 38 points. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound blueliner has 126 of WHL playing experience, all with the Wheat Kings, earning 19 points (5g-14a) with a +2 rating and 117 penalty minutes.

The native of Winnipeg, Manitoba appeared in a career high 62 games with 15 points (5g-10a) in 2019-20, also scoring his first career WHL goal at Angel of the Winds Arena on Oct, 16, a 3-2 Silvertips victory.

Lambos was originally selected by the Victoria Royals in the third round (49th overall) of the 2016 WHL Draft and acquired by the Wheat Kings from Victoria on Jan. 10, 2018 along with forward Ty Thorpe and two first round selections in 2019 and 2021 WHL Draft, in exchange for center Tanner Kaspick.
