Silverbacks General Manager Troy Mick announced today that they have made a trade with the Battlefords North Stars of the SJHL for 95 forward Matt Saharchuk for Dustin Gorgi & future considerations.
Matt is a big 6’2 left shot centerman that can also play the wing. He is a very versatile forward who will help bolster the Backs offence this year. Last season Matt was the leading scorer for the North Stars with 16 goals 20 assists for a total of 36 points in only 44 games played.
We are excited to bring Matty back to Salmon Arm. He spent some time with us back in 2012 as an affiliate player and we know what we are getting with him as a player and a person. Matty has RBC Cup experience and will add skill and grit to our lineup. Welcome back to Salmon Arm Matty.
The Ft St James native and the rest of the Silverbacks will be in Salmon Arm Aug 23 with off ice fitness testing followed by on ice sessions Aug 24 at the Shaw Centre for main camp.
