FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Smoke Eaters sign forward Quinn Disher for the upcoming 2020/21 season.
Trail, British Columbia (June 3rd, 2020) – The Trail Smoke Eaters are pleased to welcome forward Quinn Disher as the newest member to our roster for the 2020/21 season.
Disher, a native of Fort St. John, BC, comes to the Smoke Eaters after multiple successful campaigns with the Okanagan Hockey Academy (OHA). Most recently he played with the OHA Red Prep team, the same team that Jaden Senkoe played on prior to making his BCHL debut this season with the Smoke Eaters. Disher put up an impressive 18 goals and 24 assists for 42 points in 36 games.
“Quinn is a strong and skilled power forward that will compliment our current group of players up front. He has a heavy shot and a quick release, protects the puck well and puts himself into position to create quality scoring chances.
After meeting with Quinn and his family we felt he would be a great addition to our team and look forward to having him play for us in the 2020/21 season.” – AGM Jeff Urekar
The 16-year-old has continually produced at OHA, scoring 125 points over his three seasons at the academy.
“I’m honoured to be part of such a great organization. The staff have been so helpful and welcoming. After viewing the rink and facilities as well as travelling through the town and seeing the history that Trail has and how tight the team is with the community I know that it will be a great place for me to continue my hockey career and develop as a player” – Quinn Disher
The Trail Smoke Eaters are excited to welcome Quinn to Trail and look forward to seeing him don the historic Smoke Eaters crest in the fall.
