The BCHL announced today a new event on the 2019/2020 calendar, and the Prince George Spruce Kings have been named a participating team in the inaugural LNG Canada BCHL Road Show this February in Kitimat, BC, where they’ll take on the Langley Rivermen in a pair of Regular Season Contests.
The BCHL has partnered with Canucks Alumni to put on Hockey Clinics and Autograph Sessions on Friday February 14th, before the games go on February 15th and 16th at the Tamitik Arena.
“We are extremely excited to bring BCHL hockey to the community of Kitimat,” said BCHL Commissioner Chris Hebb. “This event is a great way for us to showcase our BCHL talent outside of our 17 local markets and reach hockey fans that might not be able to attend our games.”
The BCHL and LNG Canada have also announced an official agreement for the 2019-20 season as LNG Canada will become one of the league’s Founding Partners.
“We are pleased to support an initiative that brings communities together and encourages young people to be active,” says Susannah Pierce, Director Corporate Affairs with LNG Canada. “And because we believe that communities thrive when citizens volunteer their time, LNG Canada will also present the Volunteer of the Month Award, which we will award to a team of league volunteer that demonstrates dedication to their team, the league or the sport.”
The Spruce Kings will travel to Kitimat following a pair of weekday games at the Lower Mainland.
