Spruce Kings hire Rowe as trainer
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.
