Salmon Arm’s Owen Beckner named High School Player of the Month for February

Salmon Arm Silverbacks forward Owen Beckner has been named the BCHL High School Player of the Month for February.

This award is for players 18-years-old or younger who are attending high school full-time and is based on in-class and on-ice performance.

Beckner averaged over a point per game during the month, scoring two goals and adding seven assists over eight contests.

The 2005-born product of Victoria, B.C. had at least a point in all but two games in February, including back-to-back games where he contributed two and three assists respectively.

In the classroom, Beckner is a standout student at Salmon Arm Secondary. Last year, he earned a 100 per cent grade in Social Studies 11 and this year, received an A letter grade in both Pre-Calculus 12 and Anatomy & Physiology 12.

The 2023 NHL Draft prospect is committed to play NCAA Division I hockey at Colorado College.
