The Salmon Arm Silverbacks are excited to announce forward Nick Unruh has been named as an honourable mention for BCHL Player of the Week.

In two games this weekend, Unruh scored five goals including a hat-trick Friday night against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. Trailing 3-1 Sunday to the Vernon Vipers, Unruh scored twice to tie the game where the team eventually won in overtime.

The last three home games have seen Unruh score six goals, and in the span of ten days he went from goalless, to second on the team in goals.

Unruh and the Silverbacks host the Trail Smoke Eaters Saturday night in the Shaw Centre, and Prince George Spruce Kings Sunday afternoon at 3pm.
