Bochen added to Canada West camp

The Prince George Spruce Kings have announced that defenceman Nick Bochen (01) will be attending the Canada West World Junior A Challenge Camp starting tomorrow in Calgary.

Bochen, from North Vancouver, is in his rookie season with the Spruce Kings has five goals and 15 assists so far this year.

He will be replacing Spruce Kings defenceman Dylan Anhorn at the camp, who left Saturday’s game vs Langley and did not return.

“It’s certainly a bad news/good news situation,” said Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes, “It’s very unfortunate that the injury to Dylan will prevent him from attending the camp. He’s been tremendous for us this season and I know that he is very disappointed.”

He added, “The Team Canada West coaches chose to replace Dylan in the camp with Nick Bochen. Nick is an elite young player and the leading scoring rookie defenceman in our league. He and Layton will represent our team very well at the camp this week.”
