One of the tough parts of junior hockey is sometimes saying goodbye to veteran players sooner than you want to.
In the case of the Prince George Spruce Kings, this meant dealing a 20-year-old forward.
Today (Friday), the BCHL club traded Nathan Fox to the Drumheller Dragons of the Alberta Junior Hockey League for future considerations.
“We’re into a numbers game with the overage spots after some recent acquisitions which is an unfortunate part of junior hockey. Nathan was a good player and
teammate during his time here and did everything we asked of him. He played hard and gave everything he could to help our team win. We wish him much success with his new team,” said Mike Hawes, Spruce Kings general manager.
Earlier this week, the Spruce Kings dealt the playing rights of local product and former PG Cougar Aiden Reeves to the West Kelowna Warriors in exchange for future considerations.
Over three seasons with the Cats, Reeves played in 62 games collecting two assists over that span.
Reeves also suited up for the Spruce Kings and Cariboo Cougars during the 2019-20 season.
