Spruce Kings add two players, lose to Powell River

They returned to Rolling Mix Concete Arena for a Sunday afternoon date with the Powell River Kings and it wasn't quite what the Spruce Kings had hoped for.

They lost 2-1 Sunday to the Powell River Kings in front of crowd of 838 at Rolling Mix Concrete Arena.

Brett Roloson scored twice for Powell River. Nick Bochen, with his second goal of the season, had the lone goal for Prince George. All three goals came on power plays. 

Prince George outshot Powell River 29-25. Derek Krall made 28 saves in the Powell River nets. Jett Alexander took the loss in goal for the Kings.

On Saturday the Spruce Kings announced they have acquired forward Domenic Garozzo from the Salmon Arm Silverbacks in exchange for future considerations.

In 19 games with the Silverbacks this season Garozzo had three goals and seven assists. The 19-year-old Sewell, N.J. native played high school hockey in New Jersey and joined the SIlverbacks this season 

"We are excited to add Domenic to our group," said Kings general manager Mike Hawes."He is a very skilled player who skates extremely well. My goal with this deal was to increase our skill and speed up front and I'm confident that we've done that. Domenic is also a great young man who fill fit in well with our team."

The Kings also picked up forward Brett Gammer from the Battleford’s North Stars of the SJHL in exchange for 19-year-old centre Jaxon Steele.

"Brett is a hard working 200-foot player who does well in all areas of the game," said Hawes. “He is a great young man and the type of player that fits in well in our program. We look forward to having Brett join our group."

Gammer, a 19-year-old native of Edmonton, had 24 points in 28 games with the North Stars before coming to the Spruce Kings. Last season with the North Stars he scored 16 goals and 34 points in 57 regular season games and also contributed nine points in 15 playoff games. He's due to arrive in Prince George on Monday.

Steele, a former Medicine Hat Tiger, joined the Kings this season and in 20 games collected two goals and nine points.

The Spruce Kings (11-16-2-3-0, fifth in Mainland Division) host the Chilliwack Chiefs Thursday and Friday at RMCA.
