Silvertips Acquire NHL-signed Goalie Anderson


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.
