The Salmon Arm Silverbacks open their 2021-22 regular season on Saturday, Oct. 9.
After three wins and three losses in the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) preseason, the Silverbacks are looking to open their regular season with a win against the Merritt Centennials on Merritt’s home ice.
The last time the two teams faced off was in 2019, when the Silverbacks defeated the Centennials 3-2 in Salmon Arm.
The Silverbacks’ game day preview notes Nathan Morin is a player to watch when the action kicks off tonight at 7 p.m. This BCHL preseason was Morin’s first, and he recorded seven points in six games: three goals and four assists.
