COMMITMENT – Smoke Eaters Add Forward Crowell for 2022/23

For Immediate Release

Trail, British Columbia (May 27th, 2022) – The Trail Smoke Eaters are excited to add Nova Scotia born forward Brandon Crowell for the 2022/23 season.

Crowell, from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, has played the last few years in Rhode Island with Mount St. Charles Academy. The 18-year-old, right shot forward, had quite the season with Mount, claiming six different championship titles, topped off by a USA U18 National Championship. In 72 games this year Crowell had 44 points, with 17 goals and 27 assists.

Crowell brings with him a winning mentality that he says has been “instilled into who he is as a player” during his time at Mount St. Charles. Crowell says he “knows what it takes to win” and is looking forward to bringing experience with him. 

“I’ve only heard and read great things about the town and the organization. I look forward to bringing my all to the team and the fans next season!”Brandon Crowell 

“Brandon is coming off a very successful season with a National Championship! He plays with pace and brings a hardnosed north-south game. He plays with a lot of detail in his game and possesses a strong shot. We look forward to having him step into our program.”GM & HC Tim Fragle

The Smoke Eaters would like to welcome the Crowell family to the Smoke Eaters and the City of Trail! We look forward to seeing Brandon suit up for the Smoke Eaters in the Fall!
