The Spruce Kings continue to add depth to their blueline.
The team announced today that they have acquired 18-year-old defenceman James Orr from the Cornwall Colts of the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) in exchange for future considerations.
Orr had two goals and seven assists last season in 34 games.
“We’re excited to be able to acquire James. He is a young, skilled player who skates well and has a high hockey IQ. He sees the ice well, makes smart plays in the defensive zone and also joins the rush well. He
will fit in well with our skilled group of defenceman,” Spruce Kings general manager Mike Hawes said in a statement.
Orr is the 3rd defenceman the Spruce Kings have traded for in the last two weeks.
