For Immediate Release
Trail, British Columbia (April 27th, 2023) – The Smoke Eaters are excited to announce the addition of defenceman Jack Kennedy for next season!
Kennedy, from Granby, Massachusetts is coming off a championship season with Avon Old Farms School, winning the Elite 8 title at the NESPAC (New England Preparatory School Athletic Council) Prep tournament. The 18-year-old, right-shot defenceman also played 18U AAA hockey with the Buffalo Regals, which finished 2nd at the USA Hockey National Championships in San Jose this past March and Jack produced 3 points in 6 games at Nationals. Between the two teams Kennedy contributed 38 points in 58 games this season. 
“Thank you to the Smoke Eaters coaching staff for the opportunity. I’m very excited to be a part of this organization. I can’t wait to get going in Trail!” – Jack Kennedy
“Jack is a smooth, mobile puck moving defender. He brings a solid defensive game and has the ability to create offensively. We feel his game will translate well at the BCHL level!”- Dallas Calvin Assistant Coach & Director of Scouting
The Smoke Eaters are excited to welcome Jack and the entire Kennedy family to the organization and to the City of Trail!
