Quinnipiac picked up what is expected to be the final piece of the 2019-2020 recruiting class on Saturday night when Surrey Eagles captain Jeremy Smith committed to Quinnipiac. A native of Toronto, Smith is a 1998 born right shot defensemen who played the past season in the British Columbia Hockey League between both the Trail Smoke Eaters and the Surrey Eagles. Listed at 5'9, 187 pounds, Smith will turn 21 in July and give the Bobcats a mature blue liner in terms of age.
In 48 games played between Trail and Surrey he had 30 points on 13 goals and 17 assists. His 13 goals was fourth in the BCHL among defensemen and good for second on Surrey. He brings offensive ability and physical play to the table along with leadership as he was named the Surrey captain later in the season.
He played the prior two seasons with the Toronto Jr. Canadiens in the OJHL in which had 50 points in 75 regular season games. He added 12 points in another 17 playoff games over two seasons with Toronto. Congratulations to Jeremy and welcome to Quinnipiac.
