The Prince George Cougars will begin their 24th WHL season at home on Friday, September 22 against the Spokane Chiefs. Prior to puck drop that night the Cougars will raise their first ever B.C. Division championship banner which they secured on the final night of the 2016-17 season.
“Last season we made history by winning the B.C. Division banner for the first time and to see that banner raised to the rafters of the CN Centre is going to be an emotional moment for everybody involved,” said Cougars General Manager, Todd Harkins.
Cougars President Greg Pocock adds: “There is no fan-base more deserving than the Prince George Cougars fans, and we are thrilled to be able to share this historical moment with our players, staff, sponsors and in particular our fans. We can’t wait for another season of world-class hockey and top notch entertainment and to kick it all off with raising our first B.C. Division banner will be a special moment – One not to be missed.”
