The Spruce Kings have acquired defenceman Zach Gabruch (’01) from the Wellington Dukes (OJHL) in exchange for forward Mason Reeves (’01).
Gabruch, from Saskatoon, SK, spent last season with the Salmon Arm Silverbacks and was then traded to Wellington on June 19th. The 6’5, 195-pound defender finished with five points in 56 games played with the Silverbacks in the 2019-20 campaign.
“Zach is a good addition for us. He’s a big and mobile d-man with a year of experience in our league”, says GM Mike Hawes. “He will provide a lot of stability for us on the back end.”
Prior to joining the Silverbacks, Gabruch spent both the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons with the Saskatoon Blazers of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League (SMAAAHL) where he finished with a combined 30 points in those seasons.
