August 19, 2013, Prince George, B.C. (ISN) – The Prince George Cougars are pleased to announce their Training Camp Schedule for Friday, August 23rd through Monday, August 26th.

All players will register at 1:30 P.M. on Friday, August 23rd. Players born in 1997 or 1998 will then be split into three teams named after Prince George Cougars alumni (Team Chara, Team Byfuglien and Team Drazenovic). The returning veterans will practice separately in two teams (Team Hunter and Team Mason).

Headlining the list of 1998-born players will be Cougars first-round draft pick Josh Anderson who the Cougars selected third overall in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft. Fans will also get their first look at other top 1998-born players Kody McDonald (24th overall) and Kolby Johnson (52nd overall).

Team Drazenovic will hit the ice first for practice at 3:30 PM on Friday afternoon. Team Chara will then scrimmage against Team Byfuglien at 5:00 PM and Team Hunter will then square off against Team Mason at 6:45 PM. Scrimmage sessions last 75 minutes each, and run until 8:30 P.M. Saturday night. Team Drazenovic, Team Byfuglien and Team Chara will all get one hour-long practice during the weekend.

After Saturday’s scrimmages, the 1997s and 1998s will be reorganized into two teams (Team Setoguchi and Team Tyrell) and will take the ice again on Sunday for a morning scrimmage at 9:00 AM and then the Top 40 non-returning players (of all ages) will play in the Young Guns Game on Sunday night at 7:00 PM. The winning team will receive the Rob Charney Cup.

Camp concludes with an Intra-squad game at 7:00 P.M. Monday evening at CN Center. Admission is $2 for adults and no charge for children under 12. The rest of Training camp is open to the public and free of charge.
