Smoke Eater captain nets Player of the Week honour

Trail captain Connor Brown-Maloski earns the BCHL Player of the Week.

Trail Smoke Eaters forward Connor Brown-Maloski earned the BCHL Player of the Week for his outstanding play in the Smokies series win over the Salmon Arm Silverbacks.

The Kamloops product picked up four goals and two assists in three games to help the Smoke Eaters past the Silverbacks in the opening round of the postseason. Brown-Maloski had a goal and a helper and took first Star in a 4-3 win in Salmon Arm and scored again on the road the next night in a 6-4 setback. The 6-foot, 190-pound scored the game-winner as part of a two-goal, one-assist effort and another first star in the clinching game to wrap up the week.

Smokies coach Cam Keith said of the Trail captain, “Brown-Maloski had a great series and contributed at both ends of the ice, and he was truly our best forward offensively and defensively as well.”

Brown-Maloski has at least one goal in each playoff game so far with six goals and three assists in five games. The third-year Smokie and former Beaver Valley Nitehawk was third in scoring this season with 15 goals and 39 assists for 54 points in 53 games.

An honourable mention also went to Trail Smoke Eaters Defenceman Carter Cochrane who leads all playoff scorers with 12 points and netted a goal and six assists in the three games, a game-winning-goal, and received a second- and third-star nod.

Trail opens its series against the Vernon Vipers this weekend at Kal Tire Place in Vernon for Games 1 and 2, before returning to Trail on Monday and Tuesday.
