The Vernon Vipers Hockey club is pleased to announce two commitments for the upcoming season. Kenny Citron, an 18 year old defenseman, and Matt Saharchuk, an 18 year old forward, have both committed to play for the Vipers in the upcoming season.
Citron, who hails from Hartsdale New York, was captain of Team Comcast last season that competed in the USA Nationals. He is also committed to Colgate University following his junior career. The 6’1” 195lb defenseman plays a very physical game and is an intense competitor. “From the first time I saw Kenny play I really liked his game. He is very physical and hard to play against. He will be a great player in our league” says Head Coach Jason Williamson.
Saharchuk, a native of Fort St. James, played last season for the North Okanagan Knights of the KIJHL. The 6’2 200lb forward scored 32 goals and 28 assists in 50 games played last season. “Matty is one of the players who just got better and better as the season went along. Each time I watched him play he was more and more dominant. He will add size and offense to our team” says Jason Williamson.
