Spruce Kings Acquire Luc Soares

The Prince George Spruce Kings are pleased to announce the acquisition of 19 year old forward Luc Soares from The Amherst Ramblers of The Maritime Hockey League in exchange for future considerations.

Forward Luc Soares, seen here in action against the Abitibi Eskimos at the Jus Jordan Arena in Iroquois Falls on Sept. 23, sits in the Top 10 in points and goals in his first season in the NOJHL. Soares has helped give the Gold Miners a balanced attack, with two-plus lines capable of putting the puck in the net.

The 5'10" 175lbs Soares is from Delta, B.C. and played last season for the Kirkland Lake Goldminers of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League.  In 49 games for the Gold Miners Soares tallied 24 goals and 28 assists for 52 points plus 42 minutes in penalties. His playing rights had been traded to Amherst earlier this off season.

“Luc is a gifted offensive player with tremendous speed. He will provide some skill to an already strong and skilled group of forwards. He is a B.C. kid who is excited to be coming back to his home province to play" said Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes.

Luc will join the rest of his Spruce Kings teammates when the team commences their Main Training Camp on August 24th at the coliseum.
