The Prince George Spruce Kings are in the market for a new Head Coach after Dave Dupas tendered his resignation. Dupas is leaving PG due to family reasons. The 53-year-old’s wife and two kids remained at their home in West Kelowna while he coached the Spruce Kings. In a release on Facebook, the teams says that Dupas felt it was important to be closer to his family. In the same release, Spruce Kings GM Mike Hawes states “I have some potential replacements in mind and I’m going to make some calls over the next few days and have some conversations with guys that I feel would be a good fit. We’re in no rush to fill the spot but that being said I would like to fill the vacancy sooner than later so that the new coach can be heavily involved in the recruiting and building of next season’s team.” During his four and a half seasons with Prince George, Dupas coached the Spruce Kings to a 124-105-9-24 record along with a playoff spot in each of the last four years.

The Powell River Kings announced the commitment of 16-year-old forward Carter Turnbull for the 2015-16 season. Turnbull skated with the junior B Nanaimo Buccaneers this season, posting 71 points (31 goals, 40 assists) in 44 games. He added seven points (three goals, four assists) in five playoff games with the Bucs. The Nanaimo native played one game with the Kings as an affiliate player as well as four with Cowichan. He had no points in the lone game with PR, but did have a goal and an assist with the Capitals.

Forward Casey Bailey (Alberni Valley, 2009-11) signed a two-year entry level contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday as a college free agent. Bailey, who’s from Anchorage, AK, had 40 points (22 goals, 18 assists) in 36 regular season games this season with Penn State University. In 96 career games at Penn State, Bailey posted 80 points (45 goals, 35 assists).
