SPOKANE, Wash. – The Spokane Chiefs announced today that they have traded goaltender Lasse Petersen to the Everett Silvertips in exchange for a sixth round pick in the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft.
“With our goaltending numbers heading into next season, including the acquisition of 20-year-old Jayden Sittler and the continued development of prospects Matt Berlin and Donovan Buskey, this is a move we felt was necessary for our club,” said General Manager Tim Speltz.
“We’d like to thank Lasse for his contributions to our organization and wish him the best in Everett.”
Petersen, a 6-foot-2, 173-pound 19-year-old out of Swan River, Manitoba, was acquired by the Chiefs off waivers in November 2015. He appeared in 18 regular season games for Spokane, posting a 2.95 GAA and .894 SV% with two shutouts, including a 3-0 win versus the Silvertips on November 11.
He started all six of the Chiefs’ 2016 playoff games versus Victoria with a 3.25 GAA and .883 SV%.
