The Troy Bourke Award, for Offensive Player of the Year, goes to forward Josh Maser.
“No question he was the leader in the offensive category and the physical department also. His physical play led to offense and he was a real junkyard dog around the crease. He has a heavy shot and it’s not surprising to anyone he was our leader,” said Cougars’ General Manager & Head Coach Mark Lamb.
Maser led the Cougars in every major offensive category, including goals (29), power-play goals (14), points (48), and shots on goal (208). Despite not playing the final six games of the regular season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Maser was just one goal and one point back from tying career highs. In four seasons with the Cougars, he played in 218 career regular season games, amassing 90 goals, and 53 assists, for 143 points. He is sixth all-time in goals in franchise history.
The Offensive Player of the Year Award is named after former Cougar Troy Bourke. Bourke played four seasons in Prince George from 2010-2014. He is third all-time in points in franchise history, compiling 236 points (84-152-236) in 276 career regular season games. He was drafted by the Colorado Avalanche in the third-round, 72nd overall, in the 2012 NHL Draft. Bourke, from Edmonton, AB has played in Germany for the Schwenninger Wild Wings.
