Prince George Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes has signed a three-year contract extension with the team. Hawes is currently in his 16th year with the Spruce Kings hockey club. Hawes began working for the Spruce Kings as an assistant coach and has worked his way up through the front office ranks and is now currently in his 10th season as the general manager.
“I am excited and honoured to continue with the Spruce Kings organization,” Hawes said in a news release. “The BCHL has evolved tremendously in my time in this league and I am proud of what we have accomplished and how we have embraced that evolution in Prince George to become a top team and franchise. It has taken a lot of hard work from a lot of people to get the organization to where it is. I have learned the importance of surrounding yourself with like- minded and good people that care deeply about our community and our team. I look forward to the next three seasons as we continue down the path to make the Spruce Kings organization the best organization that it can be.”
