The Salmon Arm Silverbacks would like to announce that they have trade 1998 born defensemen Riley Hayles to the Powell River Kings in exchange for 1998 born defensemen Andy Stevens.
Head Coach Scott Atkinson stated, “We feel this trade will benefit both teams and both players. Both players are seeking scholarships and sometimes a change in scenery is enough to trigger some activity in that regard.”
