The Cariboo Cougars came in to the weekend with an even 4-4-2 record, but probably deserved better in BC Major Midget play. Trevor Sprague’s squad was looking for a special performance against the visiting South Island Royals, as they held Paint the Rink Pink night at the Kin 1.
The Paint the Rink Pink night was a huge success…The only Major Midget Team to ever don pink jerseys, the Cats raised over $2300 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, with BC Hockey dignitaries on hand. The players even had an autograph session after the game! Cats rookie Trey Thomas told us all about it…or at least tried to.
