Trail, British Columbia (June 26, 2018) – The Trail Smoke Eaters would like to announce the signing of Hayden Rowan. Rowan, who hails from Pemberville, Ohio, comes to the Smoke Eaters with a commitment in place to attend Yale University after next season. Rowan played the 2017-2018 season with the Sioux City Musketeers of the United States Hockey League (USHL). In 46 games last year, Rowan helped the Musketeers with 10 points on their way to a 26-win season. Before last season, Rowan skated with the Johnstown Tomahawks of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) where he compiled an impressive 45 points in 57 games as a seventeen-year-old rookie.
Jeff Tambellini, General Manager & Head Coach of the Trail Smoke Eaters feels that Rowan will help the team on multiple levels. “Our staff is very excited to add Hayden Rowan to the Trail Smoke Eaters. Hayden is a complete player who can play anywhere in our lineup. He’ll add a great deal of experience and leadership to our group. We look forward to continue building Hayden’s game and preparing him for an exciting transition to Yale the following season.”
The Smoke Eaters are pleased to have Rowan and his family join our organization and look forward to helping him to develop and prepare next year.
