While teams were making blockbuster after blockbuster Wednesday during the WHL’s Trade Deadline, the Everett Silvertips worked to address depth needs, acquiring 18-year-old forward Bronson Sharp from the Portland Winterhawks.
In exchange, the Winterhawks received a fifth-round draft pick in the 2020 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft.
“Toward the end of the trade deadline we’ve been actively exploring ways to supplement our club when possible,” said Silvertips general manager Garry Davidson. “Bronson brings an intense style that is high energy in all areas of the ice and seems to be a great fit for how we desire to play.
“Overall we’re satisfied with the additions we’ve made to our roster.”
Sharp made his debut with the Winterhawks in February 2016. Since then he’s played in 84 WHL games, recording five points (2G-3A) along the way. He’s had one game-winning goal in his WHL career and added 44 penalty minutes.
The 6-foot-0, 175-pound product of Mission, B.C. has also appeared in two WHL playoff games.
