The Everett Silvertips have drafted a local Jackson High School (JHS) freshman Daniel Woolfenden to be a Silvertip. Daniel is the first Snohomish County product to be drafted by the Silvertips, and if he were to come to the training camp with the Silvertips and make the team (the earliest this young man could do so is the 2013-14 season), he would be the third Washington native and the first Snohomish County native to play for the team.
Woolfenden, who is a defenseman for the Sno King Amateur Hockey Association Bantam A team, has a 3.67 grade point average at Jackson High. He is a pole-vaulter, javelin thrower and sprinter on the JHS track team.
JHS track coach Ryan Simmons is not surprised that the Silvertips tagged Woolfenden. He notes, "Daniel is a soft-spoken, hard working young man who has been a pleasure to coach this season. His athleticism was apparent from the beginning of the season, so it wasn’t much of a surprise to hear that he also played hockey."
