Kevin Davis, a defenceman from Kamloops, has signed a WHL education contract with the Everett Silvertips.
Davis, 15, was the Silvertips’ first selection, 11th overall, in May’s bantam draft after spending last season with the Jardine’s Blazers. The 6-foot-0, 155-pound blue-liner had 46 points, 31 of them assists, in 49 games with the Blazers.
Davis is expected to play with the major-midget Thompson Blazers this season.
