July 14,2014(ISN) – PRINCE GEORGE, BC – The Prince George Spruce Kings of the British Columbia
Hockey League (BCHL) are pleased to announce the commitment of ’96 born
defenseman Jake McCarthy for the 2014/2015 season.

The 6’1″ 195 pound Massachusetts native comes to the Spruce Kings after
playing last season for the Portland Jr. Pirates of the United States
Premier Hockey League. Prior to that, Jake played three seasons at St.
Sebastians School and is committed to the University of Massachusetts for
the 2015/2016 season.

“Jake is a player that I’ve been recruiting for the past several months,”
said Spruce Kings General Manager, Mike Hawes. “He’s a big player who skates
well for his size and doesn’t mind the physical side of the game. He has a
good skill set and thinks the game well and will come in here and be able to
play in all situations for us this season as he develops for his transition
to NCAA division 1 hockey.”

“He has good core values and comes from a strong family which will allow him
to fit in well with our tremendous group of returning players,” added Hawes.

Jake McCarthy will join his new Spruce Kings teammates just prior to the
start of training camp which begins on Friday August 29th.
