Chase Wheatcroft had a hat trick as the Prince George Cougars clinched a playoff spot Saturday with a 6-5 overtime win over the Victoria Royals.

It was a come-from-behind victory as the Royals had built up a 4-1 lead halfway through game. The Cougars, however, roared back to snag the win.

In addition to Wheatcroft’s natural hat trick, including the overtime winner, the Cougars got markers from Hudson Thornton, Ethan Samson, and Villam Kmec. Ty Young made 39 saves in the Prince George net.
