Baker to Portland

The WHL's Portland Winterhawks have signed Trail product, and former Smoke Eater and Nitehawk forward Joey Baker.

The 18 year-old put up 12 points (4-8) last season in his rookie year with the Smokies. His 2009-10 campaign in Beaver Valley saw him score 5 times and add 96 penalty minutes. According to this release from the Winterhawks, he had been placed on Portland's protected list last September.

Baker was also ranked on the NHL's Central Scouting Bureau rankings through much of last season, though he was not selected in the recent Entry Draft.

Best of luck in Portland Joey!
