Mikolajek Named New 'Backs Athletic Therapist

Press Release

The Salmon Arm SilverBacks are pleased to announce the hiring of Chris Mikolajek as the club’s new Athletic Therapist & Equipment Manager.

Mikolajek, from Winnipeg, joins the SilverBacks after spending the last two seasons with the defending Manitoba Junior Hockey League champion Steinbach Pistons. The University of Winnipeg graduate and Certified Canadian Athletic Therapist has worked in a variety of sports including lacrosse, football and baseball.

“We are very happy to have found a great person like Chris to replace Troy Clifford,” said SilverBacks head coach/general manager Troy Mick. “To be able to land Chris so late in the summer is a real blessing for our club. His qualifications are second to none and with his successes in the MJHL with Steinbach it will benefit our players greatly.”

“He is going to be a great addition to our hockey staff and we are very excited that he has chosen Salmon Arm as his new home,” Mick added.

Mikolajek replaces Troy Clifford, who recently accepted a promotion within the BC Ambulance Service.
