Cougars Pull Trigger on Another Trade
Prince George, B.C. – The Prince George Cougars have acquired 1997-born forward Tanner Wishnowski (Oakbank, MB) from the Spokane Chiefs in exchange for a conditional eighth round draft pick in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft.
Originally listed by the Kelowna Rockets in 2013, Wishnowski has split this season with the Spokane Chiefs and the Kelowna Rockets. In 23 games the 6’0”, 186 pounder has registered three goals along with seven assists and 28 penalty minutes. Last season in 54 games with the Kelowna Rockets he registered seven goals, six assists and 53 penalty minutes. He dressed in 18 playoff games during the 2016 postseason with Kelowna and had three assists and 11 penalty minutes. In 78 career WHL games (with Spokane and Kelowna) he has 11 goals, 13 assists and 81 penalty minutes.
“Tanner is a very difficult player to play against and he’s going to add a great deal of depth and experience to our lineup,” said Cougars General Manager, Todd Harkins. “He’s a big body who skates well and can create havoc in all three zones. We’re very excited to welcome Tanner to the Prince George Cougars family.”
Tanner will join the team back in Prince George at the conclusion of this road trip which includes games tonight in Red Deer, tomorrow night in Medicine Hat, Friday night in Lethbridge and Saturday night in Calgary.
