Smokies Acquire Mowat From Vernon
Mowat, who represents the future considerations that were owed Trail from the Clayton Chessa trade in January, has tallied 25 points (3-22) through 2 BCHL seasons with the Vipers, and was a member of the Vernon team that reached the RBC Cup final in 2011.
The full release from the team is available here.
I chatted with head coach Bill Birks earlier this afternoon, he tells me Mowat will be counted on as a leader and mentor both on and off the ice, and will figure prominently on Trail's special teams units come the start of the 2012-13 season.
Mowat joins fellow Okanagan product Marley Keca as Trail's two 1993-born defensemen.
Welcome to the Smokies Max!
