When it comes to the Everett Silvertips, most of the talk surrounds defenseman Ryan Murray, the second pick of the 2012 NHL Draft. Forward Joshua Winquist, a candidate for the 2013 draft, is doing his best to steal some of Murray's spotlight.
The 19-year-old forward had three goals and two assists for the Silvertips, as they won both games over the weekend. The 5-foot-11, 175-pounder had a goal and two assists in a 3-2 win at the Prince Albert Raiders on Friday, and scored two goals in a 3-2 win at the Saskatoon Blades on Saturday.
Winquist leads Everett with eight goals, 13 points and a plus-8 rating.
Here is how a few other Western Hockey League draft prospects fared this past weekend:
* Lethbridge center Russell Maxwell had a pair of goals in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Kamloops Blazers on Friday.
* Tri-City right wing Phillip Tot and center Marcus Messier each scored two goals in the Americans' 6-3 win at the Regina Pats on Friday.
* Eetu Laurikainen turned aside 43 of 44 shots in the Swift Current Broncos' 2-1 win against Saskatoon on Friday.
* Spokane Chiefs left wing Adam Helewka scored both his team's goals in a 2-1 defeat of the Seattle Thunderbirds on Friday.
