AUDIO: Hoekstra, Magrath, Kohner, Terness, Flageolle

In Round 8 of the 2017 Draft the Cougars snagged Saanich, B.C. native Michael Hoekstra who really turned some heads during the B.C. Cup. The rugged forward also has a family connection to the Cougars in the form of alumnus d-man Cody Carlson.

In Round 9 the Cougars stayed local and chose Prince George’s own Mathew Magrath. The talented defenceman has been a Cougars stick boy for each of the past four seasons, and it’s a dream come true for him to now represent his home town team in the WHL.

In the 10th round the Cougars made two picks. First they traded up to draft forward Mitch Kohner (Beaumont, MN). Kohner marked the second Minnesota-born player selected by the Cougars in Calgary on May 4th.

A few picks later in Round 10 the Cougars grabbed goaltender Logan Terness of Burnaby, B.C. Terness played last season with the Burnaby Winter Club, and already has a strong working relationship with Cougars goaltending Coach Sean Murray.
