FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 13, 2017 (Trail, BC) — The Trail Smoke Eaters have signed two goalies in as many days.
While the trade for Brandon Wells has taken care of the team’s need for an experienced goalie next season, the team is also excited that they have signed their goalie for the future. The Trail Smoke Eaters are pleased to announce that 17-year-old Brandon Peacock has signed with the team.
Peacock, who hails from Quesnel, British Columbia, has played the past four seasons for the Okanagan Hockey Academy. Peacock is ready to make the jump to the next level and the Smoke Eaters feel the duo of Wells and Peacock will give them two solid options next season.
Head Coach Cam Keith on committing Peacock: “Brandon is a goalie that we had an eye on for a while. We’re confident that he can come in to the BCHL as a 17-year-old. Brandon had a strong spring camp and we knew right away that he was a player we could help develop into a BCHL starter.”
The entire Trail Smoke Eaters organization would like to welcome Brandon to Trail.
