April 14, 2014, PRINCE GEORGE, BC (ISN) – The Prince George Spruce Kings of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) are proud to announce the commitment of Karan Toor to Dartmouth College for the 2015-16 season.

Dartmouth College is located in Hanover New Hampshire and is a NCAA Division I Ivy League school playing out of the East Coast Athletic Conference (ECAC).

Karan Toor is a ’94 born, 6’0″ 190 pound right handed defenseman from Surrey, B.C. The nineteen year old joined the Spruce Kings after attending the team’s Prospects Camp in 2012. This season Toor finished with 5 goals and 26 assists for 31 points in 51 games. He was also awarded the team’s top defenseman and best plus/minus awards.

“The Spruce Kings organization is very happy for Karan,” said Spruce Kings General Manager, Mike Hawes. “Karan is a tremendous player and a tremendous young man who is very deserving of this scholarship.”

“Karan plays against the other team’s best players every night and is widely regarded as one of the best defenders in the BCHL,” added Hawes. “He also contributes very well offensively making him one of the best all-around defenseman in our league. Karan will be the cornerstone of our defense group next season as he continues his development for another season before heading to Dartmouth College in 2015.”

The Spruce Kings also completed another very successful Spring Prospect Camp this past weekend. Look for the team to be releasing some exciting news later this week regarding some player commitments from the camp.
