The Prince George Spruce Kings are pleased to announce the re-acquisition of 20 year old defenseman Stephen Penner from The Trail Smoke Eaters in exchange for future considerations.
The 6’5” 215lb Penner is from Prince George and played 44 games for the Spruce Kings in the 2013/2014 season. He also played 28 games for the Spruce Kings last season before being traded in early December to The Trail Smoke Eaters.
“Stephen is a big, strong, physical defenseman who can contribute in both ends of the ice. I wanted to add some size and strength on the back end and Stephen is a great fit for us. Obviously we are very familiar with Stephen and what he brings to a team. As important as his on ice ability is the fact that Stephen is a great person who is a tremendous teammate and is great in the room. He will provide some leadership and will contribute to an already strong group of returning defenseman’” said Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes.
Stephen will join the rest of his Spruce Kings teammates when the team commences their Main Training Camp on August 24th at the coliseum.
