The two players had been selected in the 2022 CHL Import Draft and will play in the WHL in the upcoming season.

The Everett Silvertips have signed the ZSC Lions' Tim Metzger, 17, to a standard player agreement. "I was really impressed by his size and his work ethic,” praised Silvertips European scout Alessandro Benin. “He has had a lot of success in Zürich at the U-17 level. With time and effort put in with James Jensen, I am sure he will be able to develop into a solid WHL goalie.”

Italian forward Tommaso De Luca, who is a product of HC Ambrì-Piotta's organization, agreed to a standard player agreement with the Spokane Chiefs. "His creativity and sense for the game, along with his pro mindset, will be a great addition to the organization," Chiefs General Manager Matt Bardsley said.
