Salmon Arm, B.C. — The Salmon Arm Silverbacks have traded 2001-born forward Jonathan Krahn to the Melville Millionaires of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League in exchange for future considerations.
Krahn played in 50 games last season for the Backs, recording four goals and four assists, while also scoring one goal in five playoff games. In 2017-18, the Chilliwack, B.C. native AP’d in seven games.
“First off, Johnathan is a first-class player on and off the ice. We just felt with how well recruiting went that we weren’t going to be able to give [him] the ice time that he needed to keep developing as a player,” Silverbacks assistant coach and assistant general manager Tanner Cochrane said. “He’s going to a place where he’s familiar with the coach in Kyle Adams. We’re sad to see him go, but we hope he’s able to continue his career and we appreciate all his hard work and the effort he put in to the community.”
The Silverbacks would like to thank Krahn for his dedication to the Silverbacks and wish him well with his new organization.
The Silverbacks regular season opener is set for Sunday, September 8 at 3 p.m. at the Shaw Centre. For tickets to that or any other game this season, click here.
