The Prince George Spruce Kings have added a new goaltender into the mix for the upcoming season.

Netminder Jordan Fairlie hails from Fort St. John, and spent the 2019-20 season playing for the Cariboo Cougars of the BC Major Midget League.

The 17-year-old sported a 10-7-1 record in 18 games played with a 2.47 GAA.

Before joining the Cougars, Fairlie spent the 2018-19 season with the Okanagan Hockey Academy of the Canadian Sport School Hockey League (CSSHL) where he had a .906 save percentage in 19 games played.

“With the uncertainty regarding the access to affiliate players this season, I decided that we should carry three goaltenders,” said general manager Mike Hawes.

“It isn’t unlike what they do in NCAA Hockey.”

The Spruce Kings pre-season schedule continues October 23 in Merritt against the Centennials.
