From a Titan in New Jersey to a King in British Columbia, Simon Labelle’s talent for playing hockey is taking him places.
Labelle has been added to the Prince George Spruce Kings roster after the BCHL team struck a deal with the New Jersey Junior Titans of the North American Hockey League to acquire his rights in a deal for future considerations.
Labelle, an 18-year-old forward from Ottawa, already has two junior seasons on his resume with the Rockland Nationals of the Central Canada Hockey League. In 102 games from 2018-20 he collected 39 goals and 49 assists for 88 points.
Last season he had 24 goals and 51 points in 54 games with the Nationals and was selected for the CCHL Academic All-Star Team. He’s committed to Colgate University starting in 2021.
“Simon is a very talented player with a ton of speed who will provide some offense to our forward group. We’re excited to add him to our team, said Spruce Kings general manager Mike Hawes, in a team release.
Labelle left New Jersey and will be quarantining at his home in Ottawa before he travels to Prince George later this month.
