FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Smoke Eaters sign forward Connor Michaud for the upcoming 2020/21 season.
Trail, British Columbia (June 16th, 2020) – The Trail Smoke Eaters are pleased to welcome forward Connor Michaud as the newest member to our roster for the 2020/21 season.
Michaud, a native of Moncton, New Brunswick, has spent the last two seasons developing at the Okanagan Hockey Academy playing for both Prep team White and team Black. In 66 games Michaud put up 52 while also being an assistant captain on team Black this past season.
We had Connor join our program for some practices this season and he really fit in alongside the talent we had on last years team and got to learn about his character at that time. He’s a kid that has really put work in the last few years to push himself to where he is right now, you really appreciate that type of drive and commitment as a coach.
When I first met Connor he reminded me of Jaden Senkoe, he has a similar make up of a power forward with vision and hands to make plays offensively. We look forward to seeing Connor on the ice in Trail next season.“ – AGM Jeff Urekar.
“After having spent a week in Trail last season, meeting and practicing with the team, attending a home game and meeting fans, I experienced the rich history of the organization and its relationship with the Trail community. The coaching staff and players were open and welcoming and I quickly realized that I wanted to be part of such a great organization where I can further developed as a hockey player. I am excited to join the Trail Smoke Eaters” – Connor Michaud.
The Trail Smoke Eaters are thrilled to welcome Connor to the team and the City of Trail. We look forward to having him join the rest of the team in the fall.
