Dave Rowe has been hired as the Prince Ge­orge Spruce Kings new trainer.

Rowe, a na­tive of Bramp­ton, Ont., who played a few games in the On­tario Ju­nior Provin­cial Hockey League for the Bramp­ton Cap­i­tals from 2000-02, has worked the past two seasons in ju­nior A hockey as a trainer. He was with the Grande Prairie Storm of the Al­berta Ju­nior Hockey League last sea­son af­ter spend­ing the pre­vi­ous in the Saskatchew­an Ju­nior Hockey League with the Melville Mil­lion­aires.

“Dave will be a great ad­di­tion to our group,” said Kings gen­eral man­ager Mike Hawes. “He’s got ex­pe­ri­ence at the ju­nior level and is young and en­er­getic. He’s also played hockey at a high level when he was younger so he can re­late to hockey in­juries and can un­der­stand the needs of to­day’s player.”

Rowe re­places Rick Brown, who re­tired af­ter two seasons with the team.
