Spruce Kings pick up new goalie

The Prince George Spruce Kings have picked up a new netminder.

During his 2019-20 season, Kobe Grant played 21 games with the Thompson Blazers of the B.C. Major Midget League where he had a 10-10 record, with a 3.19 goals-against average.

Grant also suited up for one game with the Vernon Vipers for a single game last season.

"We're happy to add Kobe to the roster," Spruce Kings general manager Mike Hawes said in a press release. "He's a good young athletic goalie and is a good fit for our current roster. I wanted to get back to carrying three goaltenders due to a lack of access to affiliate players this season and in anticipation of us being able to play games in the near future.”

The six-foot-tall from Vernon also previously played with the Kelowna Chiefs in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League.
