Terik Parascak named WHL’s Rookie of the Week


Prince George Cougars

What a weekend for Terik Parascak.

The Cougars rookie forward scored five goals and added two assists this past weekend – to earn the WHL’s Rookie of the Week honour.

The 17-year-old tallied four goals and two assists on Friday against the Victoria Royals which was Parascak’s first career hat-trick and four-goal game. Parascak is the first Cougar to score four goals since Koehn Ziemmer did so in March of 2022. The following night, Parascak recorded a goal, helping the Cougars to a 5-3 win and a four-point weekend. Parascak leads the WHL in points (12), goals (8), and short-handed goals (2).

“He’s a great young prospect for the Cougars and eventually the NHL,” commented Jim Playfair following the Cougars’ 5-3 win on Saturday against the Royals.

Parascak and the Cougars return to the CN Centre to kickstart a five-game home-stand beginning tomorrow night against the Kelowna Rockets.
