The Silverbacks and Vernon Vipers worked out their second deal of the season on Monday, as forward Branden Wagner is making his way to Salmon Arm. The 18-year-old of Kelowna has three goals and one assist, along with four penalty minutes in 24 games in his first full season in the BCHL. Wagner has three season’s of BC Major Midget League experience with the Okanagan Rockets in Kelowna where he was coached by Brandon West and Misko Antisin. Wagner also played three games in the past two season’s with the Vipers and West Kelowna Warriors.
Silverbacks Head Coach Brandon West explains the move.
The Silverbacks acquired Ryley Booth from the Vipers at the end of October.
