Starting on Monday, Feb. 23 the Prince George Cougars began their southern road-trip four days early, because this trip had have three more stops than usual; Quesnel, Williams Lake and 100 Mile House. Stop one on the trip is Quesnel on Monday, Feb. 23.
The Cougars took to the ice with the Quesnel Atoms Select, the 2015 winners of the Home Depot’s ‘On the Bench’ Coaching Clinic. It was Ty Slenay who entered his team into the running for the clinic.
The Cougars followed this up with a meet and greet in the arena lobby at 7:30 p.m.
“We really think that it’s important to reach out into the region, we know we have a lot of supporters here in Quesnel and we felt it was our opportunity to give back,” Marnie Hamagami director, sales and marketing for the P.G. Cougars explained.
Taking this opportunity to give back to the communities within the region Quesnel Minor Hockey also received a donation of $1,500 from the Cougars.
“We are grateful for the support that the Cougars are giving us, it is overwhelming actually,” Quesnel Minor Hockey president David Greenwood said.
