December 20, 2012, Salmon Arm, BC., (ISN) – The Salmon Arm SilverBacks have traded forward Troy Petrick to the Battleford North Stars of the SJHL in exchange for future considerations.


Petrick, a 19 year old native of Castlegar, B.C, tallied 1 goal and 1 assist in 14 games with the SilverBacks this season.

Petrick played for current SilverBacks bench boss Scott Robinson and the Dawson Creek Rage of the NAHL last season; where he played in 53 games while scoring 6 goals and 12 assists for 18 points.

Troy is a gritty power forward who is tough to play against and will benefit greatly with his new role in the SJHL with Battleford.

The Petrick move opens up a roster spot for the SilverBacks and GM Troy Mick’s theme of getting younger this season continues as he overhauls a roster that won just 16 games in 2011-2012.

The SilverBacks would like to wish Troy the best of luck with his new team in North Battleford and thank him for his contribution to the organization this season.
