The Prince George Spruce Kings are excited to announce the acquisition of 19 year old defenseman Mitch Meek in a three team deal involving The Vernon Vipers and The West Kelowna Warriors.
In exchange for Meek the Spruce Kings have given up the BCHL/CHL list rights to 20 year old forward Luke Harrison to West Kelowna. West Kelowna had traded 20 year old defenseman Mackenzie Ferner to acquire Meek before trading him to Prince George.
Mitch Meek is a 6’0” 200lb right handed defenseman who calls Victoria, B.C. home. Last season Meek tallied 7 goals and 11 assists for 18 points and 38 penalty minutes split between The Vernon Vipers and The Victoria Grizzlies after an early season trade last season from Victoria to Vernon.
“Mitch is a veteran BCHL player with almost 150 games played. He is a top tier defenseman in our league who will come in here and play in all situations and provide tremendous leadership. He joins a strong group of defenseman that will be the backbone of our team this season” said Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes.
Mitch Meek is committed to NCAA division 1 Clarkson University for the 2016/2017 season.
