Prince George, B.C. – Prince George City Council paused  before starting their regular meeting, to honour two  local hockey players who have  achieved success on the  ice.

When you say the name Chase Witala in Prince George,  even those who may not be a Prince George Cougars fan know who  he is.   He scored 40 goals and led the Cougars with  79 points this  past season.  Chase  has been awarded the Dan  Hamhuis award  for the Most Valuable Player, and the Chris Mason Award  for being the Cougar who  received the most 3 star selections over the course of the season.

“Chase not only inspired his entire team, he inspired quite  frankly the community to get involved with the Prince George Cougars” said Mayor Lyn Hall.

Council also recognized  the local  connection to the  Kelowna Warriors who won the RBC Cup this year.  Two players  on that team are from Prince George.  Jake LeBrun racked up  5 pts during that series, and Liam Blackburn  had 7 pts during the 6 game tournament. Jake’s father Sean is the Manager of Parks and Solid  Waste Services for the City.
