Chad Smith

Great Britain under 20 alternate captain Chad Smith will be returning to Kirkcaldy for the 2019/20 season.

The 5’9, 20-year-old Kirkcaldy native first joined the Flyers back in 2017/18, making this his third season with the club. Last season Smith played in 54 games for the Flyers, 2 for the Kirkcaldy Kestrels (SNL) and was part of the GB U20 team at the World Junior Championships, where he scored 3 goals and 2 assists from 5 games.

Chad had the following to say on re-signing for his hometown club “I’m really excited to be back for another season with the Flyers. It felt like the right decision for me and too good an opportunity to pass up. I’ve felt myself progress a lot over the past few years and hopefully that will continue.

Fife is home for me, so to be able to play for the club I grew up watching, is amazing. Hopefully we can have another great year and get some silverware this season.”

Head Coach Todd Dutiaume added “I’m pleased that Chad has made the decision to stay on with us and to further his development. He’s a great local talent who will be a big asset to the club.

The next step is to get him into games with some real time on the ice. I discussed at length with him, during the signing process, that we would provide the support of our strength and conditioning coach, and I look forward to seeing Smitty come into camp in top form, ready to go.”
