The Prince George Spruce Kings are pleased to announce the commitment of 16-year-old defenceman Nick Bochen to the team beginning in the 2018-19 season.
Nick was with the team recently in training camp and throughout the exhibition season and proved that he will be a great player in the BCHL in the years to come.
He will be an affiliate player with the team this season and will spend some time with the team as his schedule allows and when the team needs to fill a roster spot due to injuries.
This season Nick will play for the Burnaby Winter Club Academy Midget Prep Team.
This program has produced some tremendous players for the Spruce Kings over the past several seasons.
“We are pleased and excited to have Nick Bochen committed to the Prince George Spruce Kings for the 2018/2019 Season. Nick exemplifies the type of defensemen that our program values on and off the ice. His ability to transition fast, his on ice awareness and his offensive prowess will allow him to be an elite contributor at the Junior A level. Nick comes from a program that promotes a team culture that aligns with our core values which will make for an easy transition into our organization. We look forward to seeing Nick in a Spruce King’s jersey next season,” said Spruce Kings Head Coach Adam Maglio.
