Ruscheinski Commits To Lindenwood

Salmon Arm, BC: The Salmon Arm Silverbacks are pleased to announce that defenceman Kieran Ruscheinski has committed to the Lindenwood University Lions for the upcoming NCAA hockey season. Located in St. Charles, Missouri, Lindenwood is a new Division 1 program in the NCAA.

"We are so happy for Kieran and his family on his commitment to Lindenwood," says General Manager Brooks Christensen. "Kieran has made an impact on not only our organization but the community of Salmon Arm over his three years here. The Silverbacks would like to thank Kieran for all his dedication to our program and playing a big part in growing the culture within our dressing room. We wish Kieran all the best with his next opportunity and look forward to following along his career."

Ruscheinski enjoyed three seasons with the Silverbacks and was drafted in the 7th round by the Montreal Canadiens at the 2019 NHL draft. The six-foot-six blueliner says he's excited to be attending Lindenwood next season.

“Lindenwood will put me in an environment where I can learn and grow as a player, and that’s what I most desire!"

Please join us in congratulating Kieran and his family on the accomplishment.
