Prince George, B.C. — The Cariboo Cougars are off to the annual BCMML All Star game this Friday to be played at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex in Coquitlam.
The Cats are heavily represented once again this year with six players taking part in the game and head coach Trevor Sprague manning the Team Blue bench.
Cougars defencemen Colton Manning and Ryan Gagnon suit up for Team Blue while forwards Nathan Craft, Tanner Fjellstrom, and Eli Jarvis join goaltender Nathan Warren on Team White.
