The Prince George Spruce Kings would like to announce the addition of 18 year old goaltender Aris Anagnostopoulos to the regular roster. Anagnostopoulos had previously been an affiliate player with the Spruce Kings this season and joins the team from the Kamloops Storm of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL).
This season with Kamloops, Anagnostopoulos had 7 wins, 7 losses and 1 tie in 16 games played to go along with a 2.63 goals against average and a .916 save percentage.
Anagnostopoulos replaces veteran Stefan Wornig on the roster. Wornig has been out of action since early November with muscle cramping issues and will remain out of action for the rest of this season while he deals with the medical issue.
“We are excited to add a young talented goalie like Aris to our roster. It’s unfortunate that we have lost Stefan Wornig for the remainder of the season but it does open a door for a good young goalie like Aris to come in here and prove that he deserves to be in this league. Aris has attended our spring camps and main training camps for the past couple of seasons and has always done extremely well. I know he will come in here and push hard to get starts” said Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes.
