It’s just his second season with the Silvertips. He was traded from the Medicine Hat Tigers before the start of last season. He played 43 games in the 2018-19 regular season, with seven goals and three assists. This season, he’s played 57 games, scoring five goals and 10 assists.

Price, 19, is a member of the Wei Wai Kum Nation and grew up playing sports in Campbell River. He was a minor hockey player before playing Junior B hockey with the Campbell River Storm.

He was part of the Storm squad that won the VIJHL Championship in 2018.

The Silvertips have qualified for the post-season, which starts after March 22.
