With over 120 players now registered for the Annual Spruce Kings Spring Prospects Camp, this coming weekend is going to be busy around the rink. Earlier today, the schedule of practices and games was made available showing a total of eight teams competing against each other in hour long sessions. Speaking with Mike Hawes, Spruce Kings Assistant General Manager and Director of Player Personnel, this camp is expected to be one of the best the team has hosted with players coming from near and far.
For hockey fans in the city of Prince George, this weekend is expected to provide a full slate of competitive high-intensity mini games with the biggest game coming on Sunday afternoon. After every team gets their fair share of ice time, forty two players will be highlighted in a top prospects game. The game will be a full game and with parents, other players and fans in the stands, the feeling in the arena will be that of one so many have come to expect when visiting the Coliseum.

With all the registrations now in, the next step is to process all of those names with player stats and create the eight teams. The coaching and scouting staff will be busy balancing the teams in preparation for the arrival of the players on Friday morning. That task will begin in earnest Tuesday in the Spruce Kings office, but don't expect to see a roster list until Friday.The coaching and scouting staff will be busy balancing the teams in preparation for the arrival of the players on Friday morning.
