The Trail Smoke Eaters traded 20-year-old Alex Holland to the Salmon Arm SilverBacks and the rights of Max Mowat to Okotoks Thursday.

The Smokies received Travis Stephens, 19, in return for Holland, and picked up Connor Collet, 19, a point-per-game forward from Okotoks.

Holland was part of a three-way deal that sent the rights of Sam Mellor to Penticton and brought Holland to Trail along with Djordje Leposavic.

Stephens, a five-foot-10-inch forward, scored 15 goals and 19 assists  in 57 games with Salmon Arm.

The pair are strong two-way players that should provide scoring touch up front for the Smokies.
