Smokies make change in goal
The Trail Smoke Eaters have completed a transaction with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, acquiring goaltender Adam Todd (94) from the Bulldogs for future considerations.
Todd, a native of Courtenay, BC, joins the Smokies after making 2 appearances this season with Alberni Valley. He posted a 1-1 record and 4.92 goals-against average in two starts.
Todd is a fourth-round Western Hockey League bantam draft selection from 2009, going 86th overall to the Saskatoon Blades. In 12 career WHL games, all with Saskatoon, the 18 year-old posted a record of 1-4-1.
To make room for Todd, the Smoke Eaters have released goaltender Braden Krogfoss (95). Krogfoss posted a 0-3 record in four appearances with the Smokies after joining the team from the WHL’s Kamloops Blazers. It’s anticipated Krogfoss will join the junior B Comox Valley Glacier Kings of the VIJHL.
In a separate move, the Smoke Eaters also released forward Michael Bell (95). The Maple Ridge native did not register a point in six games with the Smokies. He is expected to report to the KIJHL’s Beaver Valley Nitehawks.
The Smoke Eaters would like to welcome Adam Todd to Trail, and thank Braden and Michael for their contributions to the team and wish them the best of luck in their future endeavours.
