Braden Smith will join the Muskies for the 2013 -2014 campaign after having spent a year with ACHA D1, John Carroll. Smith, a 5' 7" 160 forward played for the Wisconsin Rampage, a junior A team that competes in the MNJHL. Smith, from the Cleveland suburb of North Olmsted, had this to say "I am excited to be part of a winning team that has a chance to be even better next year."
"I think Braden is right, we have a chance to be a solid team next year. Every other team we play is trying to get better so we need to find a way to keep pace. We think adding Braden helps us to accomplish that" said coach Driscoll.
Smith will pursue his Bachelors degree in the esteemed Williams College of Business while at Xavier.
