Press Release sent to the World of Junior Hockey
BC – The Penticton Vees Jr. ‘A’ Hockey Club has traded
forward Max Becker (95) to the Salmon Arm Silverbacks for future considerations,
the team announced Wednesday.
Becker played in three of the Vees first
five games this season and did not record a point. The Orange, California
native came to the Vees after spending the past two years in the Shattuck-St. Mary’s
prep hockey program in Minnesota. Last season with the Prep team, Becker put up
14 goals and 55 points in 50 games. Becker, bound for Princeton
University next fall, compiled 48 goals and 125 points in 107 games over the
past two seasons with the Shattuck-St. Mary’s program.
The trade leaves the Vees with five imports
and 21 players on their roster; one below the league maximum. The organization
would like to thank Max for his time with the Vees and wishes him all the best
in his future hockey endeavors with the Silverbacks.
