Warriors acquire Hora…

The Warriors have added some more local content to their roster with the acquisition of defenseman Spencer Hora, 18, from the Salmon Arm Silverbacks.

The Kelowna Minor Hockey product and former Okanagan Rocket is a veteran of 78 BCHL games and has one goal and 18 points to go along with 81 penalty minutes.

The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Hora is very familiar with the Warriors roster, having played with forwards Lucas Cullen, Chase Stevenson, Jordan Todd, Matt Kowalski and goaltender Cole Demers during the 2015-16 season in B.C. Major Midget League.
