The Prince George Spruce Kings have added 1999 forward Ethan O’Rourke from the Prince George Cougars of the Western Hockey League.
From Penticton, the 6’5”, 199-pound O’Rourke is a product of the Okanagan Hockey Academy. Last season with the Cariboo Cougars, O’Rourke had 16 points in 30 regular season games, followed up by one goal and three assists in seven playoff appearances. This year has been spent with the Prince George Cougars where O’Rourke has one goal and one assist in 19 games. This is the second addition the Spruce Kings have made from the Prince George Cougars this year after acquiring goalie Tavin Grant earlier in the season.
“Ethan will be a good addition to our group. He’s a big bodied young player who will add more depth to an already deep group of forwards. He moves well for a big player and has the ability to be a very effective player for us,” said Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes.
