Vernon Vipers sign Saharchuk

Vernon Vipers sign Matty Saharchuk for the next BCHL season.

Matty Saharchuk has had an eye on the Vernon Vipers ever since he moved down from Fort St. James to play hockey with the Pursuit of Excellence Academy in Kelowna in 2010.

It turns out the Vipers were also keeping tabs on Saharchuk over the past season, watching him enjoy a breakout year with the North Okanagan Junior B Knights.

Vernon head coach/GM Jason Williamson signed the 18-year-old forward this week for the coming BCHL season.
