Spruce Kings hockey is back in full stride in Prince George!
Representing the north in the BCHL, the Kings look to get back to winning ways this season after an admittedly disappointing finish! A few new fresh faces on the team, the addition of Ryan Howse on the coaching staff, a new starting goalie, let’s see what Prince George has locked and loaded!
The festivities all began with a tailgate party, hosted thanks to Save On Foods. Burgers, hot dogs, chips, Cariboo brand pop, all for a great cause.
The Spruce King faithful began to pile in to the Rolling Mix Concrete Arena, the smell of the fresh sheet of ice was wafting through the building. That may have been the biggest crowd I have seen for the boys!
The brand new Player’s Bench was opened up for the evening, with tonnes of new swag to pick and choose from, and there was added effect for the pregame as Blake Productions was there setting up a spotlight and a lights show for the pregame skate! There was such a big feel to this game!
As for the on ice action, you could not have asked for a better game. A win would have put the cherry on top, but at the same time, gotta keep that chin up that they also did not start the season o n a loss. I know I know, a tie isn’t much fun, but what is, is DOUBLE OVERTIME hockey, is walking out of the building happy and having more to look forward to from this team as they start the year 0-0-1.
I had the opportunity to bring two lucky fans on the ice for a “Flex Competition”. I gave away a 15 game flex pass to see the Spruce Kings this year, so what better way to give it away than to have the participants show off their muscles! Both people walked away winners as I also gave away $50 to Mr. Mike’s Steakhouse!
Be sure to get your tickets for the next Spruce Kings game, but if not, see if we are airing it LIVE on The Drive!
