Smoke Eaters Acquire Forward Matt Osadcik from the Merritt Centennials

The Trail Smoke Eaters announced today that they have acquired 19-year-old forward Matt Osadick from the Merritt Centennials for future consideration. The deal comes ahead of the January 10th CJHL trade deadline.

Osadick, a native of Grande Pointe, Manitoba, is in his first BCHL season and has played 36 games thus far. Prior to making the jump to the BCHL Osadick spent two seasons in the MJHL with the Swan Valley Stampeders, amassing 104 points in 99 games. Osadick comes to Trail with a University of Maine commitment for 2020-21.

“We’re thrilled add another veteran player in Mathew Osadick. Matt has outstanding speed and will be a great fit with our forward group. His past success in the playoffs and his selection to Canada West in the World Junior A tournament were both major reasons we felt he would be a great addition to our roster.”

Osadick is expected to join the team immediately and will likely be available this weekend when the Smoke Eaters host the Penticton Vees on Friday night for World Championship weekend.
