The Salmon Arm Silverbacks have added to their coaching staff. Troy Mick, general manager, announced the addition of Salmon Arm native Brooks Christensen to their coaching staff for the upcoming 2015-2016 season.
Christensen is no stranger to Jr. hockey as he was a prolific goal scorer in the KIJHL.
In 189 games split between Princeton and Revelstoke, he amassed 62 goals and 110 assists for a total of 172 points, to go along with 274 penalty minutes.
“Our coaching staff is looking forward to working with Brooks. He is very passionate about our team and community and he will oversee our team’s video and analytics, as well as helping out with skill development,” said Mick.
As a local minor hockey grad, Christensen is excited to give back to the game.
“I’m very excited to be joining the Silverbacks and working with Brandon (West) and Misko (Antisin). I had the opportunity to help them at spring camp and really enjoyed working with them. I’m looking forward to helping my hometown team win a championship,” said Christensen.
The Silverbacks are gearing up for their main camp, which will kickoff on Aug. 24, before playing six exhibition games against Langley, Vernon and West Kelowna starting on Aug. 26 at the Shaw Centre.
