Everett Silvertips Noah Juulsen named Team WHL Captain
Everett Silvertips defenseman Noah Juulsen was just named the Team WHL Captain this week. He will participate with other WHL all-stars in the 2016 CIBC Canada Russia Series, which begins November 7 in Prince George. Noah joins Silvertips goalie Carter Hart for the 2 week series.
The 19 year old out of Abbotsford, BC, Canada has been with the Everett Silvertips since 2012, when he was drafted in the 4th round. Juulsen has come into his own earning a contract with the Montreal Canadiens after being drafted in the first round of the 2015 NHL draft. Juulsen is a top level defender who will make an impact at the next level.
A solid two-way defender, Noah Juulsen is able to force plays and always find ways to support his teammates. Juulsen is a smooth, yet not dynamic skater, and is mobile when he needs to be. Plays with a chip on his shoulder, and isn’t afraid to take the hit to make the play.—eliteprostpects.com
In 2015, Juulsen was named to the WHL (West) All-Star Second Team. This year, the Silvertips captain has continued his success. Noah has appeared in 10 games scoring 4 goals and contributing 6 assists.
The Silvertips will lose Noah Juulsen and Carter Hart for the CIBC Canada Russia Series, but are currently without assistant coach Mitch Love and forward Brett Kemp who are both participating for Team Canada in the World U-17 Hockey Challenge in Soult Ste. Marie, Ontario. They should return in about a week.
