Veteran Silverback forced to retire from hockey.


20-year-old forward Alex Jewell of Vernon was forced to make an extremely difficult decision this off-season due to a health issue. The Vernon product has played four seasons in the BCHL and the past two seasons with the Silverbacks after coming from the Penticton Vees in the 2012-2013 season. He had 8 points in 29 games in his first season with Salmon Arm, before scoring 10 goals and 12 assists in 57 games with the Backs in 13-14.
