Silvertips Acquire a 5th Round Selection and a 6th Round Selection in the 2020 WHL Draft from the Regina Pats in Exchange for Left Wing Robbie Holmes
EVERETT, Wash. – The Everett Silvertips (@WHLSilvertips), seven-time U.S. Division champions of the Western Hockey League, have acquired a fifth round selection and a sixth round selection in the 2020 WHL Draft from the Regina Pats in exchange for left wing Robbie Holmes, Silvertips general manager Garry Davidson announced today.
“First and foremost, Robbie was an outstanding piece added as we addressed needs for our club in the latter stages of last season and he wore Silvertips colors with pride,” said Davidson. “We’ll always consider him part of our organization and thank him extensively for the hard work and terrific example he set every day. We’ve been forced to make a decision with our numbers and today gave us an opportunity to put Robbie back into a comfortable and familiar situation, and help us re-stock our draft picks for the future.”
Holmes, who will turn 20 on July 22, last season recorded 26 points (12g-14a) in 50 games split between the Silvertips and Regina Pats, also adding eight points (4g-4a) in 10 playoff games with Everett as he helped guide the Silvertips to their third consecutive U.S. Division title. The 6-foot-2, 187 pound forward was originally acquired by the Silvertips on Jan. 10 from Regina exchange for a second round selection in the 2020 WHL Draft, a sixth round selection in the 2022 WHL Draft, and prospect forward Sloan Stanick.
Holmes has 66 points (32g-34a) in 174 career WHL games, both with the Silvertips and Pats.
