The Prince George Spruce Kings have acquired 18-year-old defenceman James Orr from the Cornwall Colts of the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) in exchange for future considerations.
James Orr is 6’2,” 185 lbs. and calls Beaconsfield, Quebec home. Last season for the Colts Orr tallied two goals and seven assists for nine points in 34 games. Prior to his season with the Colts Orr played two seasons for the prestigious Lac St-Louis Lions Midget AAA program.
“We’re excited to be able to acquire James. He is a young, skilled player who skates well and has a high hockey IQ. He sees the ice well, makes smart plays in the defensive zone and also joins the rush well. He will fit in well with our skilled group of defensemen” said Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes.
James will join his new Spruce Kings teammates when the team begins their main training camp on Thursday August 24 at Rolling Mix Concrete Arena.
