After two seasons in a Golden Rockets jersey Bryden Marsh has signed with the Salmon Arm SilverBacks of the British Columbia Hockey League team.
His hope last season was to move up to the BCHL this year, and he has succeeded with a roster spot on the SilverBacks.
In 38 games last season, the 18-year-old tallied 26 points for the Golden Rockets. And now the Salmon Arm native gets to suit up with his home-town team.
“Bryden is a big power forward who skates very well and loves to win the battles in the corner with a very good skill set. He had a great camp in May and it was a no brainer for me to offer him a spot on our club for this year,” said Troy Mick, head coach with the SilverBacks. “He will have a break-out year for us and we are happy that he is staying in Salmon Arm to pursue his NCAA dreams.”
This won’t be the first time Marsh has worn black and silver on the ice. He was an affiliate player during the 2011/2012 season. He left Golden to play 12 games for the SilverBacks, where he recorded an assist and two penalty minutes.
Marsh, who describes his game as “high energy, there for hitting and secondary scoring,” will be missed on the Rockets lineup this year.
