The Spruce Kings have acquired defenceman Josh Wright (’01) from the Brantford 99ers of the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL) in exchange for future considerations.


Wright, 19, spent the 2019-20 season with the Trenton Golden Hawks of the OJHL, where he finished with 3 goals and 11 assists in 43 regular season games played. The right-handed 6’2 defender also had 4 helpers in 4 playoff games in 2019-20.


“Josh is a veteran d-man with good size and skills. He will be a great addition to our team when we are able to play this season and certainly for next season” – GM Mike Hawes


The Spruce Kings would like to welcome Josh and his family to the organization and to the city of Prince George!
