Cooper Prechel to the team for the 2015/2016 season.
The 6’0” 180lb Prechel is from Penticton, B.C. and played last season for the Princeton Posse of The Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL). Last season Cooper Prechel tallied 4 goals and 5 assists for 9 points plus 18 penalty minutes in 23 games played for the Posse.
“Cooper is a very solid player who plays a very good all-around game. He competes very hard, skates well, manages the puck well and can contribute in both ends of the ice. With the recent departure of Cole McCaskill to college hockey an opening on our backend was created and Cooper was someone that was very intriguing for me and the coaching staff. He will play a big part in our team for the next few seasons” said Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes.
Cooper will join the rest of his Spruce Kings team mates in mid August as they prepare for the team’s main training camp which will begin August 24th.
