Silverbacks commit to goaltender Ethan Langennegger

Ethan Langennegger

The Salmon Arm Silverbacks are pleased to announce that they have committed to goaltender Ethan Langennegger formerly of the Thompson Blazers (MML).  Langennegger had an outstanding 2017-18 campaign posting a 3.04 goals against average and a save percentage of .914.  In addition, the Kamloops native was spectacular in his only appearance as an affiliated player with the Silverbacks.  Langenegger backstopped the Silverbacks to an exciting 3-1 home victory against the West Kelowna Warriors in late October.  Langenegger faced 36 shots and posted a .973 save percentage in the contest.  Head Coach and General Manager Scott Atkinson stated, “We see Ethan as our goaltender of the future, he is a high character person who happens to be an outstanding goaltender.  He practiced with us about a dozen times last year and displayed impressive technical prowess and a high compete level at each ice time.”

Langenegger expressed his thoughts on the signing by stating, “I couldn’t be more excited to join the Salmon Arm Silverbacks.  The Silverbacks are a great organization and I’m excited to be part of their future successes.  I think this is a great fit for me going forward and I can’t wait to get started.”
