Jett Alexander will forever be Prince George Spruce Kings’ red, white and blue.
He’s now decided to keep wearing those colours going into his college career between the pipes by committing to the University of Toronto Varsity Blues for the 2020-21 season.
The 20-year-old came to the Spruce Kings’ organization for his final season of junior ‘A’ hockey after winning the national goaltender of the year for 2019 with the North York Rangers of the Ontario league.
He was also the first-ever recipient of the BCHL’s Community Hero Award after raising $358.75 for cancer research, which accounts to 25 cents for every save he made in the month of October.
Alexander suited up for 40 regular-season games in the BCHL, compiling a 13-19-5 record and logging in over 2,100 minutes of ice time.
The Kings were swept out of the playoffs by the Trail Smoke Eaters a year after winning their first BCHL and Doyle Cup titles.

The Blues play in downtown Toronto about 200 km from Bloomfield, Ont., where Alexander was born and raised.
The U-Sports club won the Ontario University Athletics’ western conference title in men’s hockey last season with a record of 21-5-2.
Toronto, however, lost in the round-robin stage of playoffs after losing two of their three games.
