SALMON ARM, AUG 31, 2017 — Salmon Arm Silverbacks General Manager Scott Atkinson today announced the team has traded 20-year-old forward Connor Sundquist for future considerations to the Surrey Eagles. Sundquist who hails from Glastonbury CT had 13 goals and 17 assists for a total of 30 points last year for the Silverbacks.
“Trading Connor Sundquist was a difficult decision for the coaching staff, but in the end we felt that to benefit his development he needed to be in an environment that allowed him to be a top six forward”, Stated GM Scott Atkinson. We were able to find that environment in Surrey, reuniting him with a former coach. Connor is a quality young man whom I’m sure will be an offensive force for Surrey and we wish nothing but success there.
We wish Connor all the best this year with Surrey.
