The Prince George Spruce Kings have hired former Spruce Kings assistant coach Colton Buffie as the team’s new Director of Scouting.
Buffie was behind the Kings bench from 2011 to 2015 and most recently served in a scouting role with the Fort McMurray Oil Barons of the Alberta Junior Hockey League.
Spruce Kings General Manager Mike Hawes says Buffie is a good judge on talent.
“Colton is somebody who’s eye for talent I trust.” said Hawes.
“In his time with us previously he proved to me that he has a knack for spotting talented players and does a good job in recruiting them to our program. I’m really looking forward to having him back on board with us because he understands the type of player and more importantly the type of young man we like to have as Spruce Kings.
