The Prince George Cougars have a new manager of broadcasting, media, and team services.

Fraser Rodgers has joined the team, replacing Dan O’Connor who has moved on to the Vancouver Giants.

Rodgers joins the Cougars after spending six years (2011-2017) with the Penticton Vees in the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) as its director of broadcasting and media relations. In his time with the Vees he called over 470 regular season games, and was behind the mic for three BCHL championships, a Western Canada Cup championship and an RBC Cup national championship. Rodgers was recently named the 2016-17 BCHL Broadcaster of the Year, an award voted on by his peers.

“We’re thrilled to have Fraser join our staff and help us deliver our exciting product to our devoted fans,” said General Manager, Todd Harkins, in a press release. “His enthusiasm and dedication is evident and I think he’ll do a tremendous job as our new play-by-play voice. Our hope was to find an experienced, eager professional and we believe we’ve found that in Fraser.”

“It has always been a dream of mine to work in the Western Hockey League and I couldn’t be more excited to join the Cougars family,” said Rodgers. “Prince George is a great hockey town and I look forward to calling it home.”

Rodgers will broadcast all 72 regular season games plus playoffs on the home of the Cougars, 94.3 the GOAT. It all begins on opening night Friday, September 22, when the Cougars raise their first BC Division championship banner at CN Centre against the Spokane Chiefs.

Rodgers plans on relocating to Prince George at the end of the month, ahead of training camp.
