The Salmon Arm Silverbacks have traded last season’s captain for future considerations.
Earlier this week, defenceman Sol Seibel was traded by the Silverbacks to the Prince George Spruce Kings so that he may further his hockey career.
“Obviously this was a tough decision. We really think highly of Sol: he’s got high-end character and is a really good kid,” Silverbacks head coach and general manager Scott Atkinson said. “We just think that he’s not going to get the opportunity here that he deserves to try to get that scholarship because the recruiting has gone very well. We feel this is in everyone’s best interest.”
