The Prince George Spruce Kings have acquired forward Preston Brodziak (99) from the Estevan Bruins (SJHL) in exchange for goaltender Keenan Rancier (00) and Future Considerations.
Brodziak is a 6’0”, 185 pound native of Estevan, Saskatchewan, who has played two full seasons in the BCHL, one each with the Nanaimo Clippers and Cowichan Valley Capitals. He has amassed 22 goals and 28 assists for 50 points in 109 BCHL games, and has added 10 points in 18 career playoff games.
GM Mike Hawes: “We’re excited to add Preston to our team. There are certain types of players and certain types of people we like to bring into the program. Preston is a great young man and a very good player so he checks a lot of the boxes for us. He will be a big part of this season’s team.”
Rancier played in 6 games for the Spruce Kings behind Logan Neaton this season, helping the team to 16-1 playoff record, Fred Page Cup, and Doyle Cup Championship. He played 40 minutes at the NJAC in Brooks, allowing 1 goal.
GM Mike Hawes: ““We’d also like to thank Keenan for his time with us. He is a great teammate who did a great job in a tough role last season. We wish him nothing but success in Estevan.”
