Everett, WA -- Everett Silvertips Vice President / General Manager Doug Soetaert announced Tuesday that the club has acquired defenseman Brennan Yadlowski from the Lethbridge Hurricanes in exchange for a second round draft pick in 2011 and a fifth round draft pick in 2012.
Yadlowski, 19, is a veteran of 197 career WHL games through three-plus seasons, having recorded 58 points on six goals and 52 assists along with 336 penalty minutes. Through five games in 2010-11, he has recorded four assists and a +1 rating in five games. Last year, he tallied 34 points on three goals and 31 assists in 70 games. He attended training camp with the Philadelphia Flyers in September.
The 6’1, 193 pound Edmonton, AB native is a two-time winner of the Lethbridge Hurricanes Scholastic Player of the Year and Most Improved Player of the Year awards and was a fifth round pick (97th overall) in the 2006 WHL Bantam Draft.
“Brennan adds size and strength to our defensive unit and is difficult to play against,” Soetaert said. “He was an assistant captain with Lethbridge and we look forward to his leadership in the dressing room and on the ice.”
