For the first time in their hockey history, the Prince George Spruce Kings have an international coach.
The BCHL team announced Monday they’ve hired Czech Republic native Lukas Lomicky as their associate coach.
Lomicky spent the past three seasons with the Revelstoke Grizzlies of the Kootenay International Hockey League, helping the Griz win the Cyclone Taylor Cup and KIJHL title in 2019 as the associate coach. He was promoted to head coach this past season and guided the Grizzlies to a 39-6-1 record, second overall in the league.
“Lukas was a huge part of our organization and the community of Revelstoke,” says general manager Ryan Parent. “I believe him to be a true team man and wish him all the best with the Prince George Spruce Kings. Their players are in good hands.”
