NHL Central Scouting has released its preliminary list of "Players to Watch" for the upcoming 2022/23 NHL Entry Draft with Smoke Eaters defenceman Brady Smith being named to the list.
Smith, who is just 17 years old playing in his first year as a Smoke Eater, has been named to the NHL Central Scouting preliminary watch list as a "C" list ranking, indicating a 4th, 5th or 6th round candidate. Already committed to the University of Connecticut, Smith has played all 11 games for the Smoke Eaters this season and has become an integral member of the team as he awaits his first points of the season. Smith is among 12 other BCHL players named to the early season watch list.
The Smoke Eaters would like to congratulate Brady on being named and wish him continued success this season!
