EVERETT – The Everett Silvertips have acquired the rights to 20-year-old goaltender Brandon Anderson and a fifth-round pick in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft from the Brandon Wheat Kings in exchange for 1995-born prospect Geordie Maguire, the club announced today. Anderson is signed to an NHL contract with the Washington Capitals.
A veteran of 138 career WHL games, Anderson spent most of the 2011-12 campaign with Brandon following an October trade from Lethbridge. In 37 games last year, 31 of which came as a Wheat King, he posted a 15-17-1-2 record to go with a 3.92 goals-against average and .890 saves percentage.
Measuring in at 6-1 and 184 pounds, Anderson appeared in 107 games with Lethbridge over the previous two-plus years, winning 29 games and making nearly 5,300 saves for the Hurricanes. The Langley, BC native was passed over in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, but signed a free-agent contract with the Capitals that September. His career WHL record stands at 44-63-7-10 with a 3.74 goals-against average and .890 saves percentage.
Maguire, 17, was selected by Everett in the fifth round (#106 overall) of the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft. The unsigned Winnipeg product spent last year in the Manitoba Midget AAA Hockey League, where he recorded 77 points (40g/37a) in 42 games.
Brandon, MB. – Brandon Wheat Kings’ general manager Kelly McCrimmon has announced the acquisition of 17-year old left-winger Geordie Maguire and future considerations from the Western Hockey League’s Everett Silvertips.
A fifth round bantam draft choice of the ‘Tips in 2010, Maguire is coming off an outstanding season with the Winnipeg AAA Midget Wild that saw the 6’ 165 lb product lead the Manitoba AAA Midget League in scoring with 40 goals and 77 points in 42 regular season games.
"We are excited to add a top young player of Geordie's ability," says McCrimmon. "He will complement our other top forwards in this age group."
"He has exceptional speed, and is a talented offensive player," he went on to say. "We look forward to adding him to our team."
In exchange for Maguire, Everett receives the Wheat Kings’ fifth round pick in next spring’s bantam draft as well as the playing rights to 20-year old goalkeeper Brandon Anderson.
Anderson, who split the 2011-12 campaign between Lethbridge and Brandon, compiled a 15-17-3 record, a 3.92 goals against average and a .890 save percentage in 37 games.
The Langley, B.C. product, who finished this past season with the American Hockey League’s Hershey Bears, is currently under contract with the Washington Capitals.
