Cole Arcuri

Smoke Eaters trade for Nelson native

The Trail Smoke Eaters have acquired Nelson native Cole Arcuri from the BCHL’s Merritt Centennials.

The Trail Smoke Eaters have acquired Nelson native Cole Arcuri from the BCHL’s Merritt Centennials for future considerations.

Arcuri, a 6’1”, 180-pound defenceman, joined the Powell River Kings in January 2014 and was traded to Merritt last season. He started strong this year, netting four assists in three games for Merritt.

The 19-year-old played in the KIJHl with the Nelson Leafs from 2012 until joining the Kings. Arcuri provides stability on the back end, sees the ice well, and should boast an offensive upside.

“It’s kind of nice to have local players wanting to come back to play here,’ said Trail coach and GM Nick Deschenes.
