FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Trail, British Columbia (June 27, 2018) – The Trail Smoke Eaters have acquired 1999-born Diarmad DiMurro from Highland Mills, New York. The 5’9” 170 lb defenseman spent last season with the Philadelphia Rebels of the North American Hockey League. As a rookie in 2017-2018, DiMurro registered 4 goals and 24 assists for the Rebels, a point total good enough for eighth amongst rookie defenseman, which earned himself a place on the NAHL East Division All-Rookie Team.
DiMurro is expected to have an immediate impact on the Smoke Eaters defense next season. General Manager and Head Coach, Jeff Tambellini: “Our staff is very excited to add Diarmad to our lineup next season. He is a dynamic puck moving defenseman who is coming off a great season in the NAHL. We believe Diarmad is going add great poise and confidence to our defensive group and we feel his style will add a great dimension to our system. “
The Smoke Eaters organization welcomes Diarmad and his family to our team. We look forward to watching his development in the BCHL and are excited to provide another player the opportunity to continue their hockey career in our program.
DiMurro joins defenseman, Jeremy Smith and forward, Hayden Rowan as the third Smoke Eaters acquisition this week.
