The Salmon Arm SilverBacks are very excited today to announce the signing of 19 year old Forward Nick Josephs, out of the KIJHL's Kelowna Chiefs.
Josephs, a native of Calgary, joins the SilverBacks while maintaining a seven point lead of the next highest scorer in the entire KIJHL, as the talented Forward has posted 37 goals, and 75 points, in 33 games with the Chiefs this season, one year after recording 76 points as a rookie in the KIJHL.
SilverBacks General Manager, and Head Coach, Troy Mick says added Josephs to the roster provides his squad with added offensive depth "Nick has all the offensive talent that any player could ever want, his numbers in Junior 'B' have been absolutely remarkable, and we've been very happy with his play in the games he's had with us as an affiliate player."
Mick says Josephs will be put in a position to succeed with the 'Backs "We're going to do our best to make sure that he has an appropriate amount of ice-time, so he can be the force that he was with the Chiefs; we're really hoping he can find some chemistry with some of our other talented offensive Forwards.
The 'Backs would like to welcome Nick, and his family, to the SilverBacks organization, as the team pushes towards the Playoffs with less than two months of Regular Season hockey remaining.
