FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Trail, British Columbia (April 11, 2018) – The Trail Smoke Eaters would like to announce the commitment of 2000-born defenceman, Kieran O’Hearn from North Delta, BC.
Kieran has played in the Delta Hockey Academy program of the CSSHL for the past four seasons. Last season saw the 6’2” defenceman contribute 16 points, and 44 penalty minutes from the backend for The Delta Academy Prep team.
Kieran suited up for the Smoke Eaters for seven regular season games this past season as an affiliate player. While skating with the Smoke Eaters, O’Hearn showed he is capable of playing at the BCHL level. Director of Hockey Operations Craig Clare feels that “Kieran will add size, stability, and character to our defensive group”, adding, “we are very excited to add a player of Kieran’s calibre to our group for next year”. The Smoke Eaters are pleased to secure another highly-recruited player out of the CSSHL to their roster for the upcoming season.
O’Hearn looks forward to playing for Trail next season and recognized his current coaches and teammates for helping achieve his goals: “I want to thank my coaches, teammates, and family for helping me get to this point. I’m extremely excited to be joining such a historic and first-class organization”.
The entire Trail Smoke Eaters organization would like to welcome Kieran to the team and look forward to successful seasons to come.
