Chrcek gets college commitment


For Immediate Release                                                            

Salmon Arm, BC – The Salmon Arm Silverbacks are proud to announce that D-Man Damian Chrcek has committed to the Michigan State Spartans for the 2016-2017 season. The 5-foot 9-inch 185 lbs D-Man has 4 goals and 7 assists in 27 games this past season, his 2nd in the BCHL.

“We are very proud of Damian and his accomplishments,” stated Brandon West, Head Coach. “He is a leader on and off the ice for our team and Michigan State is getting a great character person,” continued West.

Known for his rugged style of play this is a coming home type of situation as Damian and his family are from Marysville, Michigan. He will also continue to be teammates of fellow Spartan commit Taro Hirose who will also be joining Damian at Michigan State for the 2016-2017 season.

The Spartans Ice Hockey Team is a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), Division 1 college ice hockey program, and a member of the Big 10 conference & play at the Munn Ice Arena in East Lansing, Michigan.

Damian says, “I’m extremely thankful to be given the opportunity to play for the Spartans next year. It’s going to be an exciting new chapter in my life and I would have not had this opportunity if it were not for the Silverbacks organization and the city of Salmon Arm. I have enjoyed my 2 years here and I would like to thank my family, teammates, coaches, and everyone else who has supported me along the way.”
