Spruce Kings winger inks deal with Brock University

Alexis Cournoyer has 11 goals and 26 points in 42 BCHL games since coming to Prince George last summer

When he moved west last summer to join the B.C. Hockey League and play for the Prince George Spruce Kings, Alexis Cournoyer was hoping he would catch the eye of the college hockey scouts.

He can consider that mission accomplished.

The 20-year-old right winger, a native of Sorel-Tracy, Que., has signed a college commitment to play next season for the Brock University Badgers in Ste. Catharines, Ont.

“I am very excited to join the Badgers family next year,” said Cournoyer, in a Spruce Kings release.

“It is a great opportunity to play with an excellent program. I want to thank all the friends, family, and coaches that helped me get to this point in my career.”

One of those coaches who helped him achieve his goal is Spruce Kings head coach Alex Evin.

"We are happy for Alexis and his family that he was able to secure an opportunity to play university hockey," said Evin. “We hope he will be a great addition to the Brock program.”

The Badgers just wrapped up successful regular season, finishing first in the Ontario University Athletics West Division standings. They’ll start the first round of playoffs Thursday against Toronto Metropolitan University.

In 42 games with the Spruce Kings this season Cournoyer has 11 goals and 26 points.

He played last year in the Quebec Maritimes Junior Hockey League for the Saint John Sea Dogs and finished with 13 goals and 28 points in 67 games.

The Spruce Kings (14-27-3-0, eighth in Interior Conference) are on the road this weekend.

They play Friday in Vernon and Saturday in Merritt.
