Silvertips Acquire Shayne Brown from Tigers

Everett Silvertips Vice President / General Manager Doug Soetaert announced Thursday that the Silvertips have acquired Shayne Brown, 19, from the Medicine Hat Tigers in exchange for defenseman Tyler Kieffer, 19. A native of Stony Plain, Alberta, Brown scored three goals and added seven assists for ten points in 55 games with the Tigers, finishing with 89 penalty minutes in his eighteen-year old WHL campaign.

Brown, a 6'1, 198 pound mobile, stay at home left-handed defenseman, has logged 138 career WHL games, amassing four goals and fifteen assists for nineteen points along with 172 penalty minutes.

"We're happy to add a quality defenseman of this nature to our organization," Soetaert noted. "He's been a leader in Medicine Hat, and we look forward to his leadership here in Everett."

After signing a WHL Educational Contract in November, 2007 following a stint with the USHL's Lincoln Stars, Kieffer played in 27 games, finishing with three assists and 27 penalty minutes to go along with a +4 rating.

The Silvertips will conclude the preseason this weekend when they take part in a home-and-home series with the Tri-City Americans, with Friday's home contest scheduled to begin at 7:35 pm at Comcast Arena. The home opener is Saturday, September 20th, featuring a 7:05 contest against the rival Vancouver Giants.
