Spruce Kings add defenceman


The Prince George Spruce Kings have acquired 19-year-old defenceman Griffin Roubos from the Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League (GOJHL) in exchange for future considerations.

The 6’1” 185 pound Roubos is from Stoney Creek, Ontario. Acquired midway through last season by the Corvairs, Roubos had a total of 17 goals and 27 assists for 44 points in 43 games after starting the year with the Thorold Blackhawks. In 16 playoff games with Caledonia, the defenceman had three goals and eight assists for 11 points. Roubos was selected to play in the past two GOJHL Top Prospects games in 2015/16 and 2016/17.

“We’re excited to add a dynamic player like Griffin to our team. Griffin is an excellent skater who sees the ice very well and will be looked upon to generate a lot of offense from our back end while still being defensively responsible. We’ve had a lot of success in recent years recruiting defencemen from this league with Adam Brubacher and Adam Burnett, and we feel confident Griffin will be the same kind of impact player for our team that those two were. He’s also a terrific young man who will blend in well with our existing group of players,” said Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes.

Griffin will be joining his new Spruce Kings teammates when the team begins training camp on August 24th in the Rolling Mix Concrete Arena.
