Dec 16 Smokies Alumni Update

I'm going to try and keep a running list of where to get statistical updates on former Smoke Eaters that are playing hockey around the globe this season. This is an incomplete list and I'll be updating it as often as I can. If you have a link to a player I have not been able to find please pass it along at shawnsamsmullin@hotmail.com

After a couple of weeks off I have a lot to report.  First news that Devan Hartigan earned the rookie of the week nod for the Central Collegiate Hockey Association on December 8th.  I didn't even know he was playing until a couple of guys on the bus told me.  A former Smoke Eater, Spruce King and Beaver Valley Nitehawk, Hartigan earned a spot on Northern Michigan as a walk on.  Congratulations Devan!  

Congrats are also in order for Cam Brodie who got named to the Coastal Conference All-Star Team.  Brodie's excellence in all aspects of the game have finally been rewarded.  This past month he and Dylan Herold were joined by another former Smoke Eater when Nathan Westover got traded back to the BCHL to Burnaby.  Lots of guys for Smokies fans to cheer for on the Express.  They weren't the only former Smoke Eaters on the move.  Brett Corcoran got traded from Cowichan Valley to Surrey and Brad Davis returned to the league with Langley.

Speaking of All-Stars, Miles Houston and Brock Monroe were awarded for their outstanding play with spots in the KIJHL All-Star game.  Congrats to both guys for leading Nelson to the best record in the league so far this season.
