The Prince George Spruce Kings have acquired forward Jaxon Steele (’00) from the Drayton Valley Thunder of the AJHL in exchange for forward Henry Wagner and future considerations.
Steele, a Calgary Alberta product, spent last season with the Medicine Hat Tigers of the WHL, where he played in 48 games, and having 5 points.
“We’re excited to add Jaxon to our lineup. Jaxon will add some size up front and give us a boost offensively. He makes us much deeper and gives the coaches more options with the forward group” says GM Mike Hawes. “Henry is a 10 out of 10 person and it’s always tough to part with kids like that. However, he is going to get more opportunity in Drayton Valley than we can give him. We wish him all the best.”
Steele and the Spruce Kings get set for a 4 game home stand beginning Friday night against the Nanaimo Clippers. You can get tickets at the office or online.
