PRINCE GEORGE, BC – The Prince George Spruce Kings of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) have been advised by Tanner Fjellstrom of his decision to leave the team to focus on his post-secondary education.
The Prince George Spruce Kings have added forward David Stephens to the roster. Stephens is a 93 born, 5’ 10” 190 lbs forward from Whitehorse, Yukon. Stephens is familiar to Prince George having played with the Cariboo Cougars during the 2008-10 seasons and has also played major junior with the Edmonton Oil Kings and most recently the Moncton Wildcats of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL).
"Tanner has decided that he would like to focus on his schooling," said Spruce Kings General Manager, Mike Hawes. "I would like to thank Tanner for his contributions to our team this season and wish him all the best in his future endeavours."
"David Stephens is a very good player who will be able to contribute at both ends of the ice," said Hawes. "He is very familiar with Prince George having played with the Cariboo Cougars and will be a very nice addition to our lineup, improving our overall depth up front."
David Stephens is expected to play with the Spruce Kings this weekend when the team travels to Chilliwack and Coquitlam.
