The Trail Smoke Eaters added another piece to their blueline by acquiring 18-year-old defenceman Matt Alexander from the SIJHL's Thunder Bay North Stars.
Alexander joins Braden Jones, Djordje Leposavic and Wayland Williams as just four of the newcomers on the back end for Bill Birks' squad that looks to improve on its' last place finish in 2011-12.
Neither team has confirmed the deal with an official media release, but it was in a Thunder Bay newspaper yesterday and is now listed on the "Transactions" page of the BCHL website.
To Trail Smoke Eaters:
