The Nelson Daily has learned Nelson’s Adam Wheeldon has signed on to play with the Trail Smoke Eaters of the BCHL Saturday.

The 17-year-old forward played 44 games with Nelson last season as a 16-year-old, scoring two goals and registering nine assists. Used primarily as a checker, Wheeldon finished the season with 78 penalty minutes.

The son of former Leaf coach Simon Wheeldon was traded to the Kelowna Chiefs during the summer by former Leaf coach and GM Chris Shaw.

It was thought Wheeldon would attend the camp of the Westside Warriors but instead decided to attend Trail’s training camp.
