The Niagara-on-the-Lake Nationals continue to add skill to the lineup with the signing of 2001-born forward Mason Smith. 

A resident of Cheektowaga, N.Y., Smith suited up last season with the Buffalo Stars program and Team Harrow. 

"He's going to be an exciting player to watch this season," said Nationals coach Spencer DeWolfe. "He has an incredible work ethic, good shot release and great footwork. We are absolutely thrilled to have Mason start his junior career with us."
