BCHL veteran Rylan Bechtel joins Kings defense
The Prince George Spruce Kings are pleased to announce the acquisition of 20 year old defenseman Rylan Bechtel from The Cowichan Valley Capitals in exchange for 19 year old defenseman Mitch Meek.
The 5’10” 195lb Bechtel is from Chilliwack and is a BCHL veteran with 173 games played. Last season in 56 games played with Cowichan Valley, Bechtel tallied 5 goals and 37 assists for 42 points to go along with 60 penalty minutes.
“Rylan is a veteran player with a lot of experience in our league. He is a very solid two way defenseman who will come in here and play in all situations for us while providing a lot of leadership. He’s also a tremendous young man who will fit in well with our core values and provide some mentorship for our younger players” said Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes.
Mitch Meek had been acquired by the Spruce Kings earlier in the off season in a three team trade involving The Vernon Vipers and West Kelowna Warriors.
Rylan Bechtel will join the rest of his Spruce Kings teammates when the team commences their Main Training Camp on Monday August 24th at the coliseum.
