EVERETT, Wash. – The Everett Silvertips (@WHLSilvertips) announced today the team has been reassigned defenseman Kevin Davis from the Minnesota Wild (NHL).
Davis, entering his overage season, most recently skated with the Wild in the NHL Prospect Tournament at Traverse City, Mich., Sept. 8-12. He was last season’s runner up for the Brad Hornung Trophy as the WHL’s Most Sportsmanlike Player. The 6-foot, 185-pound defenseman had just 14 penalty minutes while never missing a game last season, additionally ranking third on the Silvertips in scoring and tied for eighth among WHL defensemen with 59 points (9g-50a). His 29 power play assists were tied for the lead and 37 points were second among league defensemen.
Last season he was named recipient of the Silvertips Most Improved Player and Iron Man awards. He has 109 points in 276 career WHL games – all in a Tips sweater – and ranks sixth on the Tips all-time games played list.
Silvertips goaltender Carter Hart (Philadelphia Flyers) and forward Patrick Bajkov (Vegas Golden Knights) currently remain in training camps with their respective NHL clubs.
