The Prince George Spruce Kings signed defenceman Ben LeFranc for the upcoming season.

“We are excited to add Ben and his family to our organization”, says Spruce Kings bench boss Alex Evin.

“Along with a tremendous work ethic, Ben is a very strong skater and an intelligent player.”

The Penticton product spent last season with the Okanagan Hockey Academy, where he finished with 6 goals and 12 assists in 35 games.

LeFranc has been apart of the OHA Academy since the 2016-2017 season.
