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.
