Drew Wilson Named Team Broadcaster

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Trail, British Columbia (August 8, 2023) – The Trail Smoke Eaters announce the hiring of Drew Wilson ahead of the upcoming 2023-24 season.

Wilson has been in broadcasting for over 43 years and can regularly be heard on Bounce Radio as the station’s News/Sports Anchor.

Drew started calling hockey in 1983 as the voice of the Pembroke Lumber Kings of the CJHL. He got his first taste of the BCHL in 1995 calling Prince George Spruce Kings games on Shaw TV. 

Wilson became the playoff voice of the Trail Smoke Eaters in 2001 and called road games during the regular season and playoffs in 2003-04 before moving to Prince Albert to become the voice of the WHL’s Raiders.

While there, he called over 1,000 games and also broadcast three Telus Cup Championships, captured by the Midget AAA Prince Albert Mintos.

Drew’s play-by-play career also includes stints as voice of the Saskatchewan Rush of the National Lacrosse League and the Saskatoon Hilltops of the Canadian Junior Football League, who won three Canadian Bowl titles during Drew’s tenure in their broadcast booth. 

The Trail Smoke Eaters organization would like to thank Ben Phillips for his years of service to the team and the city of Trail, and wish him the very best in his future endeavours.
