Smokies Exhibition Tournament

The Trail Smoke Eaters announced today that they're hosting an exhibition tournament on August 28th, 29th and 30th featuring the Smokies, the Penticton Vees, the Powell River Kings and the Brooks Bandits. BCHL fans should be familiar with the three clubs from this league while Brooks will bring AJHL competition into the Cominco Arena.

Each team will play each other once over the span of the three days. The tournament will allow the teams to evaluate their rosters before the regular season, but it will also serve as an opportunity to showcase their young talent to college and pro scouts. The organizations involved are using their contacts to make sure as many scouts as possible get to Trail for this three day event. I talked to Jim Ingram about it today on Mountain FM's Overtime...
