The Trail Smoke Eaters continue to wheel and deal, as the club sent recent acquisition Brodyn Nielsen, 19, to the Whitecourt Wolverines of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, in exchange for 18-year-old defenceman Sean Davies.
Davies, a native of Drumheller, Alberta, posted one goal and two points in five appearances with Whitecourt this season. In 104 career AJHL regular-season and playoff games with Whitecourt and the Olds Grizzlys, the six-foot-one-inch Davies has recorded a total of seven goals, 18 points and 45 penalty minutes.
Davies will be the fourth new face to don the Orange and Black in the past two weeks with Bryan Basilico from the USHL’s Green Bay Gamblers and Thunder Bay native Dylan Mascarin joining the team last weekend. Nakusp native Greyson Reitmeier, 17, was signed by the Smokies from the Fernie Ghostriders of the KIJHL two weeks ago, after Mitch Foyle decided to leave the team in favour of the Beaver Valley Nitehawks.
Davies is expected to make his Smoke Eaters debut Friday when Trail hosts the Alberni Valley Bulldogs at 7:30 p.m. at the Cominco Arena. On Saturday, Merritt comes to town for its fourth meeting with Trail this season.
