The stockpile of talent heading into Hamden, Conn. to play for Rand Pecknold and his coaching staff is becoming borderline absurd. The recent big fish that recruiting coordinator Bill Riga reeled in is former Denver recruit and Salmon Arm Silverbacks forward Landon Smith.
The Greenwood Village, Colo. native previously played in the USHL for the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders and Chicago Steel. This is his first season in the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL).
Smith has 33 goals and 26 assists in 37 games played. His goal total and point total both rank first in the BCHL. The six-foot forward has great hands, above average speed and good vision along the walls.
Smith played midget hockey with the Colorado Thunderbird organization. He will arrive at Quinnipiac in the fall.
Couldn't be more excited to announce my commitment to play Division 1 college hockey for Quinnipiac University next year #Bobcats— Landon Smith (@ltsmith16) January 3, 2014
