The Prince George Spruce Kings are excited to announce the commitment of 18 year old forward Travis Schneider to the team for the upcoming season.
The 5’11” 175 pound Schneider is from Highland Park, Illinois but currently calls Palm Beach Gardens, Florida home. He played Prep Hockey last season for Canterbury School based in New Milford, Connecticut.
At Canterbury, Schneider was a team captain and scored 16 goals and had 16 assists for 32 points in 30 games.
“We are excited to add a player like Travis to our team. He’s a very intelligent player, skates well, sees the ice well and prides himself in being a complete 200 foot player. We were recently able to watch Travis play at a showcase in Boston and his abilities and his compete level stood out immediately. He will be able to step into our lineup next season and contribute at both ends of the ice” said Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes.
“When I talked to Coach Chad he explained the type of culture and environment he was trying to create in the Spruce Kings’ locker room. He talked about how he wants players that are going to give 100% effort day in and day out and that’s something I am really excited to be a part of. I believe my attitude and effort reflect what Coach Chad wants to see on and off the ice. I am extremely excited to be a part of the Spruce Kings’ organization” said new Spruce King player Travis Schneider.
Travis Schneider will join the rest of his Spruce Kings team mates just prior to the start of the team’s main training camp on August 25th.
