Popular Centennials forward Daniel Nach-baur has been traded to the Prince George Spruce Kings for future considerations.

The deal took place just one day before the December 1 deadline when BCHL teams had their number of player cards reduced from 35 to 25.

The 19-year-old Nachbaur, son of former NHLer Don Nachbaur, was in his second season with the Centennials. In 64 regular season and playoff games with Merritt, he had recorded 13 goals and 11 assists for 24 points, to go along with 57 minutes in penalties.

The dealing of Nachbaur to the Spruce Kings was necessitated in part by the return of Braden Fuller from injury and the surplus of 19-year-olds on this year’s Cents team.

Nachbaur joins a Prince George squad that currently sits in second place in the Mainland division of the BCHL with a record of 16-11-0-2.
