The Prince George Spruce Kings continue to make deals as they await the official start to the 2020-21 season.

In their eighth trade this off-season, Haydn Delorme is the latest to be moved from the Prince George Spruce Kings and will join the Swan Valley Stampeders of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL).

The 20-year-old is entering his final year of junior ‘A’ eligibility.

He joined the ‘Kings after acquiring him ahead of the 2020 BCHL trade deadline from Coquitlam, but he had suited up for 34 WHL games with Portland before making the deal.

Delorme recorded six points in 14 regular-season games with the 2019 Fred Page and Doyle Cup champions, including four goals.

The Port Moody product only played one 2020 playoff match.

Prior to cancelling the season on March 13, the Stampeders finished the MJHL regular-season with a record of 35-19-5-1.

Prince George is receiving future considerations from Swan Valley in exchange for Delorme.

As it stands, the Spruce Kings now have four graduating players slated for 2021.

The BCHL has currently postponed its 2020-21 start date to Dec. 1 as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

The league will await the approval of Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry before it can start making a schedule, but Hawes has said players will arrive in Prince George in late September for the start of an extended training camp.
