Spruce Kings called upon the 100 Mile House Wranglers for some help this weekend
With a couple of key injuries on the back end, the Spruce Kings have called up Jordan Low of the 100 Mile House Wranglers of the KIJHL. Still out of the lineup is Cooper Rush with his lower body injury that will have the big defenceman out until mid to late February. Karan Toor, who missed the last two games, will also be out of the lineup Saturday night and possibly Sunday afternoon.
To help fill the void, the Spruce Kings have called up a local hockey product in Jordan Low. Playing this season with the 100 Mile House Wranglers, Low is a 6’5″ 215 pound left handed defenceman. In his two most recent games, Low has scored a goal and added an assist in both. Through 23 games, the big defenceman has scored six goals and added 7 assists.
“Jordan is a big body that moves very well and works hard,” said Spruce Kings head coach, Dave Dupas. “Given the opportunity he will be a good player at this level.”
Jordan Low will be playing tonight for the Wranglers and will make his way up to Prince George for Saturday’s and Sunday’s games against the Coquitlam Express. The two divisional opponents will clash in what is a potential first round playoff preview.
The Spruce Kings sit in second place of the Mainland Division with 54 points (25-15-2-2) while the Express are in third place with 48 points (22-18-1-3). The two teams will see each other five times including the double header this weekend and another next weekend before finishing off the season series in Coquitlam on February 21st.
