Veteran goalie Bo Didur is now property of the Salmon Arm Silverbacks

Didur dealt to Silverbacks

The Salmon Arm Silverbacks have landed goalie Bob Didur in a BCHL trade with the Langley Rivermen.

The Salmon Arm Silverbacks have landed veteran goalie Bob Didur in a B.C. Hockey League trade with the Langley Rivermen.

Didur, a 20-year-old with 60 BCHL wins over four seasons, went to Salmon Arm for defenceman Carter Stephenson, 19. Both players hail from West Vancouver.

Stephenson racked up five goals and 13 points in 23 games with the Vernon Vipers last year before being dealt to the Silverbacks. He rang up 1-7-8 on 30 games in the Shuswap.

Didur’s career totals are a 3.39 GAA and a .897 save percentage in 136 games. He also played for Team Canada West in the 2015 World Junior A Hockey Challenge.

“Bo is a tremendous goalie in the BCHL and his stats reflect this,” said Salmon Arm GM Troy Mick. “Having Bo Didur and Nic Tallarico as our one-two punch for this coming season is a great way to start the BCHL campaign. Bo is a quality young man and will fit into the Silverbacks culture really well. He recently had a scholarship to Penn State NCAA but he is now looking for another program and we can’t wait to help him achieve his NCAA goals. “
