Trail forward commits to Colorado

Trail Smoke Eater, Nick Halloran, committed to play for the NCAA Division 1 Colorado College

There was some good news for the Trail Smoke Eaters last week as forward, Nick Halloran, committed to play for the NCAA Division 1 Colorado College (CC).

The five-foot-10, 170-pound Halloran is the Smoke Eaters top scorer with 21 goals and 36 points in 41 games this season. The talented 18-year-old is a native of Draper, Colorado and is thrilled to be returning to his home state for his college career.

“I’ve been in touch with Colorado for the past month or two, and I really liked the program and the coaches, and it just seemed like the right fit,” said Halloran. “It’s very close to home and that was a big part of my decision.”

Halloran is a highly skilled playmaker and should help a CC Tigers team that has struggled to a 5-17 record in the NCAA’s National Collegiate Hockey Conference.

The Smoke Eaters forward has been a highlight for a Smokies’ team that has struggled in the New Year, suffering it’s sixth straight loss on Sunday to fall behind the Vernon Vipers for the final playoff spot. However, the Colorado Rampage alumnus is hoping to help the Smoke Eaters get back on the winning path and win a playoff berth in the final six weeks of the season.

“It’s turned out to be a pretty good season, for myself and the Smoke Eaters, aside from the past few games,” said Halloran. “We’re in a playoff push, and Trail has something special here and I think we can do it we just have to buckle down.”
