Everett, WA - December 12, 2006: Everett Silvertips VP/General Manager Doug Soetaert has announced that the Everett Silvertips have acquired defenseman Jesse Zetariuk and forward Carter Smith from the Moose Jaw Warriors. In return the Silvertips send defenseman Cody Thoring, forward Brady Calla and a 2008 6th Round Draft Pick to Moose Jaw.

This season for the Warriors, Zetariuk, a 6'3, 202 pound defenseman, posted 5 goals and 15 assists for 20 points. The rugged 20 year old defenseman posted 7 goals and 31 assists last season for the Warriors in helping them capture the 2006 Eastern Conference Championship. The Brandon, MB native started his WHL career with the Red Deer Rebels in the 2002-2003 season.

Carter Smith, Moose Jaw's 2nd round pick in 2003 Bantam Draft played in 17 games with the Warriors this season and recorded 2 goals and 2 assists. The Eyebrow, SK native tallied 7 goals and 1 assist last season with Moose Jaw.

"This is a very difficult day for the Silvertips organization," mentions Silvertips VP/General Manager Doug Soetaert. "Trading two players like Thoring and Calla was very hard because of their hard work and dedication they displayed with the Silvertips on and off the ice. I want to wish both of them the best in the future. Overall we are trying to be the best team that we can and I feel we are acquiring two solid players from Moose Jaw that will add size and strength on the blue line and a forward with a great amount of potential."

The Silvertips next home game will take place on Saturday, December 16 against the Vancouver Giants at the Everett Events Center. Game time is set for 7:05 p.m. For tickets for Saturday night's game, log onto Everett Silvertips or contact the EEC Box Office at 1-866-332-8499.
