The Prince George Spruce Kings wrap up their brief two game home stand against the Trail Smoke Eaters tonight at the Rolling Mix Concrete Arena, scheduled for a 7:00 start.
The Spruce Kings are coming off a lop sided 8-2 win last night against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. A trio of Spruce Kings scored their first BCHL goals last night including Tom Richter, Brendan Hill, and Mason Waite. Prince George also got big nights from Chong Min Lee who had four assists and Nick Poisson who had two goals and two assists in the winning effort. Jett Alexander got the win in goal, making 27 saves. Fin Williams also got involved on the scoresheet, as the 16 year old finished with a goal and an assist in the victory.
The Trail Smoke Eaters come into tonight’s game winning their last two hockey games. Reigning player of the week Kent Johnson has led the Smokies offensively thus far. The 17-year-old Michigan commit has eight points in his last two games and is tied for 5th in the BCHL with 11 points (tied with Spruce Kings forward Nick Poisson). Trail defenceman and former Victoria Royal Jameson Murray will also make his WHL debut tonight. Goaltenders Logan Terness and Donovan Buskey have been splitting time this year, as both goaltenders have a win each thus far on the young season.
