The Silverbacks signed winger Karl El-Mir from the Selects Academy U-18 in the first week of June. The 18-year-old from St. Lambert, Quebec was voted as the MVP and Offensive Player of the Year in the USPHL U-18 Div. this past season. In 30 games, El-Mir potted 21 goals and 37 assists for 58 points. He’ll join his Selects teammate, Chase Priskie of the Backs as they both set to attend the University of Connecticut in 2015-16.
