The Powell River Kings would like to announce the acquisition of defenceman Riley Hayles and future considerations from the Salmon Arm Silverbacks, in exchange for defenceman Andy Stevens.
Originally from Delta, Hayles will enter his 3rd season of BCHL action in September. In his previous two years, both in Salmon Arm, Hayles scored 8 goals and 39 points. Prior to playing with the Silverbacks, the 6’0, 185lb defenceman attended the Okanagan Hockey Academy, captaining his team during his final year.
Going to Salmon Arm is 1998 born defenceman, Andy Stevens. Over the last three years, Stevens had been a stalwart on the Kings blue line, playing in 178 regular season and 25 playoff games between 2014 and 2018. In that span, Stevens scored 12 goals and 73 points.
The Kings would like to thank Andy for his work on and off the ice with the Kings over the past three seasons, and wish him all the best with the Silverbacks. The team also would like to welcome Riley to the Kings ahead of the team’s 30th anniversary season.
