The Trail Smoke Eaters would like to announce the commitment of 1998-born defenseman, Seth Barton from Kelowna.
Barton has played the past two seasons for the Kelowna Rockets of the BC Major Midget League. Last season saw Barton contribute 38-points from the backend for a Rockets team that placed third in the BCMML.
“Seth will add size, a big shot from the blueline, and character to our team,” said Head Coach Cam Keith. “We are very excited to add a player of Seth’s caliber.”
Barton has already had an opportunity to see some action in the BCHL, playing for the Nanaimo Clippers last year.
The Smoke Eaters are excited to add another highly-recruited player out of the BC Major Midget League to their roster for the upcoming season. The entire organization would like to welcome Seth to the team and look forward to successful seasons to come.
