The Trail Smoke Eaters have acquired 2001-born goaltender Evan Fradette from the Fort McMurray Oil Barons of the Alberta Junior Hockey League for 2001-born forward Justin Ross and future considerations.

Fradette, who’s from St. Albert, AB, spent last season with the Oil Barons where he registered a 7-0-2 record in nine games along with a 2.31 goals-against-average, a .916 save percentage, and two shutouts.

Ross, a native of Calgary, AB, scored one goal and added four assists in 15 games last season with the Smoke Eaters. He had six points in 42 games with the AJHL’s Brooks Bandits in 2019-20.
