TRAIL, B.C. – The Trail Smoke Eaters Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club is pleased to announce the commitment of forward Jaden Senkoe (’01) for the 2019/20 season.
Senkoe, 17, has played the last three season at the Okanagan Hockey Academy and is currently in his second season with the Midget Prep Red team. The 6’1”, 185-pound forward played in 36 games last season, registering 13 goals and 17 assists for 30 points to go along with 14 penalty minutes. The start to the 2018/19 season has been a strong one for Senkoe, collecting three goals and two assists for five points in his first four games.
The Westlock, Alberta native comes to the Smoke Eaters organization with plenty of leadership qualities as he is currently the captain of his Midget Prep squad at OHA. Senkoe has also played for Team Northwest at the Alberta Cup in 2015, an annual tournament featuring the top midget-aged players in the province.
“I am very excited to add Jaden Senkoe to our 2019/20 roster,” commented Smoke Eaters General Manager and Head Coach Jeff Tambellini, “Jaden checks all the boxes for the type of player and person we want to add to our organization. He is the Captain and leader of his team at Okanagan Hockey Academy and possess a high-end skill set. We know he is at an outstanding program and will be prepared to step into our lineup next season and make an impact.”
Senkoe is excited for the opportunity that lies ahead, “I’m very excited to join this organization,” said the Smoke Eaters newest recruit, “I’m looking forward to next season and being a part of this team.”
The Smoke Eaters would like to welcome Jaden and his family to the City of Trail and the Smoke Eaters organization.
