Guilford, Conn., - The Elite Hockey Academy organization is excited to announce that 18U forward, Sebastian Bradshaw, has committed to the Trail Smoke Eaters of the BCHL for the ’23-’24 hockey season.
The 6’3 Ontario native joined Elite this year and has impressed thus far. With 36 games played, the power forward has produced 20 goals (2nd on team) and 15 assists for 35 points, 1 shy of a point per game. Last year, Bradshaw, played north of the border for the Ajax/Pickering Raiders 18U program. Skating for the Raiders, he put up 36 points in 28 games, good enough to catch the eye of the London Knights. On May 5, 2022, Bradshaw was selected by the Knights (1st Round, 14th Overall) in the OHL Priority Selection Draft. He attended OHL camp prior to making his decision to join Elite.
Academic Counselor, Michael Pierpaoli added, "Sebastian Bradshaw is an excellent student along with a top athlete. He is able to balance the rigorous workload of hockey along with his academics to achieve high marks. Sebastian is a bright young man with a positive attitude to take on the day. When Sebastian arrives at school he greets us with a hearty hello and a smile. We hope he achieves his goal of continuing his hockey career and we wish him great success. Notre Dame is delighted to have a young man like Sebastian attending our school and he is welcome to come back and visit anytime."
When asked about his recent commitment, Sebastian had this to say, “I’m excited to be a Trail Smoke Eater next season… I am thankful for Elite Hockey Academy this year [and] for the development and opportunities they have given me”.
“We love his size and his ability to move up and down the ice. He has proven himself this year at the 18U level. We couldn’t be more excited to get him out to Trail”. - Trail Smoke Eaters Head Coach, Tim Fragle
