The Prince George Spruce Kings have announced the death of long time equipment manager Malcolm Poburan, who passed away peacefully this morning.

Poburan has been with the Spruce Kings for almost 40 years, holding both the equipment manager, and assistant equipment manager roles. Malcolm watched his final Spruce Kings game at the RMCA during Game 3 of the BCHL Fred Page Cup Finals.

“It is certainly a sad day for the Spruce Kings organization. Malcolm was a mainstay in our locker room for almost 40 years,” said Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes. “Our organization is not where it is today without people like Malcolm. He was loved by all the players and staff that have come through this organization over the years. He will be remembered for his sense of humour but also for his commitment and dedication to the team. He will forever be a Spruce King. The Spruce Kings organization would like to offer our condolences to Malcolm’s family during this sad time.”
