“I'm very happy that we have been able to add a dynamic player like Christian to our team,” said Spruce Kings General Manager, Mike Hawes. “Christian brings good size and a tremendous skill set to our back end.

His experience and veteran presence will provide stability and confidence on and off the ice as well.”
