SILVERBACKS MAKE DEAL WITH STEINBACH PISTONS (MJHL)
SALMON ARM, January 6, 2016 — Salmon Arm Silverbacks general manager Troy Mick today announced the team has traded D-Man Michael Winnitoy (20) to the Steinbach Pistons of the MJHL for future considerations.
“This was a very hard decision that we had to make today” stated Mick, Mike was an excellent teammate and played hard for us, however we had to get down to 6 20 year olds and we are extremely happy that he remains at the Jr A level with a great program in Steinbach.
He will be going there and will play big minutes for them as they wanted Mike’s style of play as Steinbach is in 2nd place and should have a very good play off run. The Silverbacks would like to thank Mike for his contributions to the team this year and wish him the best of luck in Steinbach.
The Silverbacks travel to Wenatchee Wild for their 1st ever regular season visit to the Town Toyota Center this Friday night at 7 PM, followed by the BACKS travelling to Penticton to play the Vees Saturday night at 6 PM.
