Smokies, Wolverines exchange veterans
The Trail Smoke Eaters have completed a trade with the Whitecourt Wolverines of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, acquiring defenseman Sean Davies (95) in exchange for forward Brodyn Nielsen (94).
Davies, a native of Drumheller, Alberta, posted 1 goal and 2 points in 5 appearances with Whitecourt this season. In 104 career AJHL regular-season and playoff games with Whitecourt and the Olds Grizzlys, the 6’1” Davies has recorded a total of 7 goals, 18 points and 45 penalty minutes.
Nielsen, from Vancouver, put up two assists in nine games with the Smoke Eaters this season after being acquired in a mid-summer deal from the Chilliwack Chiefs.
The Smoke Eaters would like to thank Brodyn Nielsen for his contributions to the organization and welcome Sean Davies to Trail.
Davies is expected to make his Smoke Eaters debut Oct.4, when Trail hosts the Alberni Valley Bulldogs (7:30 p.m., Cominco Arena). For ticket information, call (250) 368-5000.
