Anderson commits to Trail Smoke Eaters

Whitehorse product makes successful stint as Trail Smoke Eaters AP count

The Trail Smoke Eaters announced the commitment of Bryce Anderson for the 2018-2019 season.

The five-foot-nine Whitehorse native currently plays for the Yale Hockey Academy Prep team of the Canadian Sports School League after spending last season with the Valley West Hawks of the BC Major Midget Hockey League. In 15 games this season, Anderson has registered 27 points for the Yale Prep team and has also tallied two goals in three games as an AP for the Smoke Eaters.

Assistant coach, Jessie Leung, was Anderson’s coach for a full season with the Valley West Hawks in 2016-2017 and the young forward spent some time at the start of the season practicing with the team to get a feel for the organization.

“Having the opportunity to practice with the team in Trail for a few weeks and see the town was an unbelievable experience,” said Anderson. “The facilities and fan base are amongst the best in the league. I am beyond excited to be suiting up for the Smoke Eaters next season and will continue to work hard to prepare myself to be a key part of the team next season.”

Smoke Eaters Director of Hockey and Business Operations, Craig Clare says the entire organization is excited to add Bryce to the Smoke Eaters next season.

“He provides speed, skill, and character to our group, and the Smoke Eaters and fans received a brief glimpse of what Anderson will add to the lineup and are very excited for the future with Bryce wearing a Smoke Eater uniform. ”

The commitment of Anderson marks the first signing of a player from the Identification Camp held in Whitehorse this past spring, which is a positive sign of things to come for the future camps to be held in the area. The team is already preparing to return to Whitehorse next May to have another look at the players that are from that area in hopes of identifying additional players.
