The Melfort Mustangs are proud to announce that graduated forward George King has committed to the University of Lethbridge for the 2019-20 season!

The University of Lethbridge Men’s Hockey Team competes in U Sports, the highest level of play at the university level in Canada.  Last season the University of Lethbridge men’s hockey team finished with a 9-17-2 record, sixth place in the Canada West Conference.

King, was acquired by the Mustangs in January 2019 from the Dauphin Kings. He played in 20 regular season games scoring 9 goals and 10 assists for 19 points. He also scored 2 goals in 11 playoff games.

“George King was a great addition for us. He added a scoring punch down the stretch and was a huge help in our push for the playoffs.” Melfort Mustang Head Coach and GM Trevor Blevins said. “We thank George for his time in Melfort, and wish him all the best in Lethbridge.”

King and the University of Lethbridge begin the 2019-20 season this fall.
