The Salmon Arm Silverbacks are happy to announce that the team has  acquired 97 forward Haydn Hopkins from the Victoria Grizzlies for future considerations

Hopkins, a 5’ 9”, 183-pound forward, has spent parts of the last three seasons in the Western Hockey League. Originally drafted in the twelfth round of the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft by the Saskatoon Blades, the Victoria, British Columbia native has suited up for three WHL teams including Saskatoon, the Prince George Cougars, and most recently the Vancouver Giants.

The 18-year-old, right handed shot appeared in 53 WHL games in his career, recording three goals and ten points. Prior to his WHL career, Hopkins tallied 19 goals and 60 points in 67 career games with the South Island Royals in the BCMML.

To make room for the move the Silverbacks traded Ben Evanish to the Whitecourt Wolverines of the AJHL for future considerations
