The Prince George Spruce Kings are pleased to announce the acquisition of 18 year old forward Shawn Kennedy from the Carleton Place Canadians of the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) in exchange for the Canadian Junior A rights to goaltender Tavin Grant and future considerations.
The 6’0” 200 pound Kennedy is from Cornwall Ontario and just completed his second season with the Canadians.. Last season in 58 games he tallied 14 goals and 20 assists for 34 points plus 58 minutes in penalties. He also contributed 11 points in 16 playoff games.
“Shawn is a gifted player who we are excited to add to our team. He thinks the game very well and competes hard in all areas of the ice. He’s also a young player but already has 2 years of Junior A experience with an excellent program in Carleton Place. We jumped at the opportunity to add a young, experienced and talented player to our lineup” said Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes.
