Smokies Swing Deal With Nanaimo, Grande Prairie

A three-team trade between the Smokies, Nanaimo Clippers and Grande Prairie Storm of the AJHL.

Trail sent forward Adam Boytinck and defenseman Nick Wong to the Clippers for 18 year-old forward Tanner Clarkson and future considerations. Boytinck and Wong were then sent by Nanaimo to Grande Prairie for forwards Mike Sones and Dan Correale.

In Clarkson, the Smokies get a player who could well develop into a sniper. He's scored 8 points in the BCHL this season, but put up 42 points (24-18) in 49 games as a 17 year-old with the KIJHL's Kelowna Chiefs last year, including one of the nicest goals I saw all last season in a game at Castlegar. He also spent 37 games with the Williams Lake Timberwolves as a 16 year-old.

All the best to Adam and Nick with their new team, and welcome to Trail Tanner!
