The Trail Smoke Eaters are pleased to announce Dustin Scafe-Pozzobon as the team’s Play-by-Play Announcer for the upcoming 2018-19 season.
Scafe-Pozzobon, 27, swapped his hockey stick for a microphone 8 years ago and has never looked back. He began his broadcasting career with the KIJHL’s Sicamous Eagles, before moving to his first Junior-A opportunity with the SJHL’s Melfort Mustangs and Nipawin Hawks. Dustin’s most notable achievement was the opportunity to work with Hockey Canada and TSN at the 2014 RBC Cup in Vernon. The former Marketing Manager and Voice of the Merritt Centennials is excited to call Trail home and looks forward to bringing fans to the edge of their seats for years to come, adding “What has taken place in Trail over the last few seasons is incredible, and the support of the community has proven to be second-to-none in the BCHL. To do something I am so passionate toward in a city filled with energy motivates me to work tirelessly to give the best fans in the league the best broadcast and coverage in the league.”
“We are thrilled to have Dustin join the Smoke Eaters as our new play-by-play broadcaster,” said Smoke Eaters Director of Hockey & Business Operations, Craig Clare. “Dustin is a talented broadcaster, who brings a wide array of skills to our organization, while also being extremely passionate and knowlegeable about both our team and the BCHL. Fans will also be excited as they will now have an opportunity to listen to the team’s road games live.”
