The Prince George Spruce Kings are excited to announce the commitment of 18 year old defenseman Drew Lennon.
The 6’2” 180 pound Lennon from Bloomington, Illinois played last season for the Connecticut Oilers of the Eastern Hockey League.
With the Oilers, Lennon scored three goals and had 14 assists for 17 points to go along with 31 penalty minutes in 39 games. In six playoff contests he had one assist.
Prior to suiting up with the Oilers, Lennon was a member of the Rocky Mountain RoughRiders 16U AAA team where he picked up eight goals and 18 assists en route to making the East Coast Elite League (ECEL) 2014-15 U16 All-Star Team. While playing in Texas with the U14 Ice Jets Academy, Lennon won the national AA title.
“Drew has good size, skates very well and has great vision on the ice. He works hard on and off the ice towards improving his overall play. He is the type of player that we are looking for to be a Spruce King. We are excited that he has chosen to join our organization and we look forward to working with him upon his arrival in August.” said Spruce Kings Head Coach Chad van Diemen.
Lennon added, “I met coach Chad out in Boston and he explained what they were trying to do there [Prince George] with the culture change. That really caught my attention and is something I want to be a part of. I think I bring some strong defensive play, the ability to get the puck up to the forwards with a good first pass, and get into the rush with my skating. ” said newly acquired Spruce Kings defenseman Drew Lennon.
Drew Lennon will join the rest of his Spruce Kings team mates just prior to the start of the team’s main training camp on August 25th.
