Here’s the release from the Spruce Kings:
Schoech was brought to Prince George part way into last season to help on the blue line and also played forward at times through the year.
“Spencer played well in his time with us last season,” said Spruce Kings General Manager, Mike Hawes. “Unfortunately he has been caught in a bit of a numbers game as he would have been an overage player and an import player for us this upcoming season. He is going to a good program in Manitoba and will do well there.”
The Spruce Kings organization would like to thank Spencer for all of his contributions to the team and wish the twenty year old all the best in his future hockey career.
