The Prince George Cougars selected a Dutch born player in the CHL’s Import Draft. Bartek Bison is a big forward who played in a German development league last year. The 6-3, 187 pound, 17 year old winger, had four goals and four assists in 29 games last season, although he was playing against players 2 years older than him. He was also recently drafted by a team in the United States Hockey League, but the Cougars are confident he’ll report to Prince George.
With their second pick, the Cougars selected a big Slovakian blueliner. Luka Zorka is 6 – 5, 205 pounds. He has played in a Russian Junior Hockey League for the last two seasons and has extensive international experience. Zorka was also selected in the KHL draft in Russia.
