Mike Lysyj enters his second season as assistant coach with the Everett Silvertips.

The native of Hillsborough, N.J. helped guide the Silvertips to a 46-13-3-1 record in the Western Hockey League before the cancellation of the season and playoffs. The Silvertips season would finish the season 2nd in the U.S. Division and 2nd overall in the WHL standings.

The Silvertips accumulated four players who scored 20 goals or more, saw Bryce Kindopp become the first Silvertip to score 40 goals in a season since 2013-14, and led the entire WHL in power play percentage (27.5) and fewest goals allowed per game (2.2).

The Silvertips also ranked third in the league in goal differential (+86), led the league in road wins (21), and were second in home wins (25).

By the final week of the WHL regular season, the Silvertips saw all three 20-year old category players sign entry level contracts with National Hockey League clubs: Kindopp (Anaheim), defenseman Wyatte Wylie (Philadelphia), and defenseman Jake Christiansen (Columbus). In addition, four Silvertips - forwards Gage Goncalves and Michal Gut, and defensemen Kasper Puutio and Ronan Seeley have been listed by NHL Central Scouting in their final ranking ahead of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.

Goaltender Dustin Wolf earned his second consecutive WHL Western Conference Goaltender of the Year award after being selected by the Calgary Flames in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, while Wolf was named WHL First Team All-Star and Christiansen and Kindopp were named Second Team All-Stars, all in the Western Conference.

Silvertips players also earned international competition opportunities with Wolf named to Team USA at the 2020 IIHF World Juniors, and defenseman Olen Zellweger heading to Team Canada Red for the 2019 World U17 Hockey Challenge.

Previously, Lysyj, 30 (11/30/1988), spent the 2018-2019 season on the bench as assistant coach for Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (NCAA), serving with skill development on and off the ice. Prior, Lysyj spent four years as assistant coach at SUNY Fredonia (NCAA), where he was responsible for recruiting and scouting across the United States and Canada, and assisted with film breakdown, on-ice skill development, and hockey operations administration. In 2017-18, he helped guide the Blue Devils to a 9-3-3 mark on home ice and an appearance in the SUNYAC title game for the first time in seven years, upsetting national powers Plattsburgh State and Oswego in the conference tournament.

Carrying additional experience as an instructor with USA Hockey’s New England District, a USA Hockey Festival Evaluator (Atlantic & Southeast District), and with Pro Ambitions Inc. in Dedham, Mass., the former forward made his pro debut with an assist in six games with the Orlando Solar Bears (ECHL) in 2012-13 and recorded 29 games split between Peoria and Mississippi (SPHL) in 2013-14. Lysyj spent all four seasons of his collegiate career with SUNY Cortland, registering 77 points (39g-38a) in 96 games and led the Red Dragons with 33 points (18g-15a) in 25 games as a 2012-13 senior.

At SUNY Cortland, Lysyj graduated with his B.A. degree in Kinesiology (coaching concentration) in 2013 and earned his M.S. degree in Sports Management & Exercise Science in 2017 at SUNY Fredonia.
