For our players to have the opportunity to work with Tyler on skills such as shooting, technique & execution will play a crucial part in their hockey development,” said Salmon Arm Sports Inc Operations Manager Brooks Christensen.

“I am honoured to be joining the Salmon Arm Silverbacks. I want to thank the ownership group and Brooks for this opportunity. In my previous experience in the BCHL, I have heard nothing but good things from former players and staff about the community of Salmon Arm. I am excited for the opportunity to contribute to this community. I also look forward to working with Scott and the rest of the staff to help the players achieve their goals of reaching the next level and ultimately winning a National Championship,” said Mike Bois.
