PRINCE GEORGE – The Prince George Spruce Kings are happy to announce the commitment of forward Skogen Schrott (’05) for the 2023-24 BC Hockey League season.
A product of Lithia, Florida, USA (approximately 5,290 kilometres away from Prince George), Schrott recently spent time with Florida Alliance 18U AAA team, where he played in the Elite Prospects Cup Series. In 15 games, Schrott tallied 16 goals and 15 assists (31 points) to lead the team. He also spent time this year playing high school hockey in Florida with Newsome High, recording 25 points (18 goals, seven assists) in just seven games.
Schrott has already committed to play NCAA Division I hockey with Michigan Tech when he has concluded his junior hockey career.
“The recruiting process was smooth and easy,” said Schrott on his commitment. “I decided to play for the Spruce Kings because of how well it fits me and my play style.”
During the 2021-22 season, Schrott played 35 games with the Florida Alliance North 16U AAA program. He scored 26 goals and 15 assists (41 points) while also playing two games with the Youngstown Phantoms of the United States Hockey League.
“We are thrilled to add Skogen to the Spruce Kings,” said head coach Alex Evin. “Along with strong work habits, he should bring great play-making ability and speed to our forward group next season.”
The five-foot-nine 154-pound forward describes his style of play as being both fast and skilled.
“Obviously coming from Florida there’s definitely going to be a little bit of a culture shock, but I’m most excited about the change in my life and to experience a whole new life,” said Schrott.
The Spruce Kings would like to welcome Skogen to the family and look forward to him joining us in Northern B.C.
