Prince George Extends General Manager Mike Hawes Through 2017-18:

Prince George solidified its front office for the next four seasons by signing General Manager Mike Hawes to a three-year contract extension.

Hawes, who is entering his fifth season as GM of the Spruce Kings, had one season left on a two-year contract he signed back in March 2013.

Here’s the release from the Spruce Kings:

The Prince George Spruce Kings of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) are pleased to announce that General Manager Mike Hawes has been signed to a three year contract extension which takes him through the 2017/2018 season. Hawes still has one year remaining on his existing deal through the 2014/2015 season.

Mike Hawes is entering his 10th season with the Spruce Kings after joining the organization in 2005. During that time he served as associate coach for two seasons, including a silver medal finish in the 2007 Royal Bank Cup which was hosted by the Spruce Kings and the City of Prince George. Hawes then moved to the managerial side of the organization to become the Assistant General Manager for four seasons before being named General Manager in November 2010.

“Under Mike’s leadership our organization has enjoyed stability unmatched since joining the BCHL,” said Spruce Kings President, Thomas Bohmer. “To secure the leadership for our group moving forward is the foundation for continued success and a run at a championship.”
