Kevin Smith to UBC
Former Grizzlies captain Kevin Smith has accepted a scholarship to play for the
UBC Thunderbirds of the CIS.
Smith, who came in at the trade deadline last season, after being released by the WHL's Kelowna Rockets really showed his calibre of play as an attacking defenceman who was relied upon like an on ice coach, after the Grizzlies roster moves at the deadline.
Smith, in 15 game as a Grizzlie, had 10 assists and 8 PIM in the 2011/12 season.
Kevin, joins a UBC team who struggled with a record of just under.500 last season on a team which included former BCHLers Jason Yee, Max Grassi and Ben Schmidt.
Good luck at UBC Kevin.
