History

Founded in 1972, the Spruce Kings originally were a part of the Junior "B" Pacific Northwest Hockey League in the 1975-1976 season. In 1980, the Spruce Kings joined the Tier II Junior "A" Peace Cariboo Junior Hockey League for its inaugural year, winning the inaugural title. From 1980 until 1996, the Kings won 9 league titles. In 1996, the Spruce Kings bought out the rights of the BCHL's New West Outlaws and moved in the Prince George team.

The Prince George Spruce Kings hosted the Royal Bank Cup in 2007. They lost in an anti-climactic final after surviving a record-setting quintuple overtime match in the semi-final versus the Camrose Kodiaks. Spruce King goalie Jordan White made 91 saves in the 3-2 victory. At 146 minutes, it was the longest game in RBC Royal Bank Cup history.
