The Prince George Cougars are a major junior ice hockey team in the Western Hockey League. The team is based in Prince George, British Columbia, and plays its home games at the CN Centre. The Cougars were founded in 1971 as the Victoria Cougars, but later moved to Prince George in 1994. On March 19th, after months of rumors, a team of local investors led by Greg Pocock, along with NHLers Dan Hamhuis and Eric Brewer agreed, in principle, to purchase the Prince George Cougars. The deal still awaits league approval. The official confirmation of the sale will occur April 30, upon approval from the WHL Board of Governors.
