The Trail Smoke Eaters are excited to welcome forward David Sacco, a University of New Hampshire commit, to the Smoke Eaters organization for the upcoming season.

The 18-year-old played just 24 games for the Spartans this year and finished with 17 goals and 23 assists for 40 points. Despite playing three fewer games than his team mates, Sacco still finished second in team scoring. Sacco also played games for the Cape Cod Whalers playing games in the EHF U18 Elite league adding 7 points in 9 games and 18 more points in the Midget division for the Whalers. As a Spartan Sacco had 69 points in 49 games over his two season.
"We're very excited to add David Sacco to our next roster. David has a top end ability to score, while also possessing a high level of abrasiveness. We believe this mix of talent and edge will fit right into our forward group. Our goal is to have David ready to step into the University of New Hampshire for the 2021-22 season as a top Freshman." - HC & GM Jeff Tambellini.
When it the opportunity to become a Smoke Eater came before Sacco, he said he called current Smoke Eater and former teammate Connor Sweeney. "He told me what a great town and community Trail was. He said the energy inside Cominco and the passion of the fans makes this a great place to play your junior hockey. It's been a goal of mine get to the next level of hockey, I'm excited that it will be in Trail and i'm looking forward to putting in the work to bring a championship to the City of Trail."
The Trail Smoke Eaters would like to welcome David Sacco to the City of Trail and the Smoke Eaters organization. We look forward to seeing him in Smoke Eaters orange in the fall.
