The Prince George Spruce Kings have signed head coach Adam Maglio to a two-year extension to remain with the team through the 2020/2021 season.

Maglio, who is in his fourth year with the team, and second as head coach, has already compiled an impressive resume in Prince George. He lead the Spruce Kings to their first Mainland Division Title last season, and lead them all the way to the BCHL Fred Page Cup Finals, where they fell to Wenatchee in 5 games. He has a 38-18-4-4 record to date.

Spruce Kings GM Mike Hawes: “I’m happy that we were able to get Adam signed to a new contract that will keep him with us for another couple of seasons, I feel that the continuity and stability of having a great coach in place for an extended period is important to the success of any team. Adam has shown that he is an elite coach. His commitment to our team, his work ethic and ability to teach and relate to the players is tremendous. I look forward to continuing to move our organization forward with Adam.”

Head Coach Adam Maglio: “I am excited to sign an extension with the Prince George Spruce Kings beyond the 2018/2019 season. I would like to thank Mike Hawes (GM) Rick Turgeon (President) and the rest of the organization for their continued support and trust in our coaching staff. I feel fortunate to be a part of a great organization in which I believe has one of the best hockey communities in the BCHL. I look forward to working and pushing the growth and development of our team on a daily basis.”

Maglio and the Spruce Kings play three divisional games this weekend taking on Surrey, Langley, and Coquitlam on the road.
