Others from Salmon Arm include Scott Jackson, property of the Tampa Bay Lightning, former SilverBack and Vernon Viper, Cody Bostock, and Josh Cowan of the Red Deer Rustlers.

Former Salmon Arm SilverBack captain, Damon Kipp, now of the University of New Hampshire Black Bears of the NCAA, will make his return to Sunwave Centre.

Last year’s scholarship winner was Joel Kipp of the Sicamous Eagles.

Tickets will be available at the door, Chevy’s Sports and Brushstrokes. Admission price is $6. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
