Trevor Smith Nets First NHL Goal

I linked to the I on the Future: Trevor Smith video before but this is a more friendly, YouTube version especially for those who haven't seen the video yet.

Hopefully, and I can't imagine that they weren't, Trevor's family was able to make the trip from North Vancouver to Calgary.

I'll go ahead and say I told you so after posting that Trevor was on the shortlist for the call-up - not bad, bagging your first NHL goal in your fifth NHL game. And though he was sent back to Bridgeport, if he keeps working hard and succeeding there it won't be long until he is back in New York.

If you haven't seen his goal you can attempt to view it on the NHL.com recap page (small in page video) which is title-linked from this article or you can try this direct video link to the NHL Network Online (large, separate window).

There is also the Islanders NHL.com site with a more extensive write-up and quotes from Smith.

Keep working hard, Trevor.

Finally, not to steal any of his thunder but Daniel Winnik was recalled by the Phoenix Coyotes and Kevin Regan was given a motivational call-up to the Boston Bruins before being returned to starting duties with Providence late yesterday.

That makes four Wildcat Alums who have played in the NHL this season and five having gotten the call-up.

Go 'Cats!
