Everyone is invited to welcome the Spruce Kings back to Prince George to celebrate their championship season.
The city will be hosting the event on Tuesday afternoon at 4 p.m. at the Prince George Conference and Civic Centre. Fans will hear from the Spruce Kings and have an opportunity to take photos with the players and their trophies.
Never before this season has a Prince George team won the Fred Page Cup (BCHL championship) or the Doyle Cup (B.C. / Alberta championship). The Spruce Kings advanced to the National Junior A Championship in Brooks, Alberta, but lost in the final to the host team.
The last Prince George hockey team to win a national championship was the Prince George Mohawks in 1977-78.
