Silverbacks Trade For Bo Didur
June 6, 2017
SALMON ARM, June 5, 2017 — Salmon Arm Silverbacks general manager Troy Mick today announced the team has traded D-Man Carter Stephenson (98), West Vancouver BC to the Langley Rivermen for Goaltender Bo Didur (97), West Vancouver, BC
Bo comes to the Silverbacks after playing the last 3 years with the Langley Rivermen and started his career in the BCHL with the Surrey Eagles. His career totals are a 3.39 GAA & a .897 save percentage in 136 games. Bo also played for the WJAC for Team Canada West in 2015.
“Bo is a tremendous goalie in the BCHL and his stats reflect this”, says GM Troy Mick. Having Bo Didur & Nic Tallarico as our 1-2 punch for this coming season it is a great way to start the BCHL campaign. Bo is a quality young man and will fit into the Silverbacks culture really well. He recently had a scholarship to Penn State NCAA but he is now looking for another program and we can’t wait to help him achieve his NCAA goals.
The silverbacks would also like to thank Carter for his time with the Backs and wish him the best of luck with the Rivermen.
