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.
