Prince George Cougars general manager and head coach Mark Lamb has announced the acquisition of defenseman Chase Pauls (03) from the Lethbridge Hurricanes in exchange for a 2024 third-round pick in the WHL Prospect’s Draft.

Pauls, 20, owned nine points in 30 games (2-7-9) with Lethbridge in the 2023-2024 campaign. Hailing from Osler, SK, the right-handed blue-liner who stands at 6’5” has had a robust WHL career, suiting up in 190 games and accumulating 55 points (18-37-55) over four seasons.

“Pauls is a big veteran defensive defenceman that will fit in our group very well,” said Lamb. “He is a top penalty killer, defends hard, and makes a good first pass.”

 Notably, Chase Pauls earned an invitation to the Los Angeles Kings Rookie camp earlier this fall.

The Prince George Cougars are set to return to action tonight at the CN Centre, hosting the Edmonton Oil Kings at 7:00 pm. Fans can secure their tickets for the game at www.ticketsnorth.ca.
