Adrian Smith Joins the Falcons

The Fresno Falcons have announced the signing of forward Adrian Smith for the 1999-2000 season. Smith is the sixth rookie and thirteenth player overall to sign with Fresno as the team readies itself for the upcoming WCHL campaign.

The 6'0", 195 lb. native of Beeton, Ontario joins the Falcons following a successful four-year career at Brown University. Smith was second on the Bears in scoring his senior year with 11 goals, 11 assists, and 22 points. He also led his team in penalty minutes. The Bears alternate captain also made the All-Ivy League Team as an honorable mention and helped guide Brown into the ECAC play-offs.

"We're very excited to bring in Adrian," commented Falcons head coach Blaine Moore. "He has goal scoring ability and, even thought he's a rookie, we'll look for him to provide a lot of emotional energy for us throughout the year with his aggressive style of play."
