The Silverbacks Junior A Hockey Club has acquired a new player.
Jordan Burns, ’95 defencemen from Vernon, has been acquired from the Powell River Kings for future considerations.
Burns is committed to Alaska-Fairbanks (NCAA Div. 1).
Silverbacks head coach Brandon West remarked: “Jordan is an experienced BCHL defencemen that brings a well-rounded game. I’ve coached Jordan in the past with the Okanagan Rockets (BC Major Midget League) and it’s been great to watch him develop as a player. We’re confident he will have an immediate impact on our team.”
This year’s Silverbacks Teddy Bear Toss was another success. The sales of the teddy bears resulted in more than $400 for the Salvation Army and four trucks were filled with bears for needy kids in the community.
