Former Cariboo Cougar and Spruce King Brandon Manning is in town, giving back to young hockey players. He is on the ice with the Kings Hockey School, and we chatted with the NHL’er about the chance to be out there at Rolling Mix Concrete Arena. Manning spent one season with the Spruce Kings, in the 2007-2008 campaign. This past year with the Philadelphia Flyers, he scored his first career National Hockey League goal, while playing in 56 games, and 6 playoff contests. But the 26 year old says it wasn’t so long ago that he was attending hockey camps, and helping out a Jr. Hockey player.
