The Prince George Cougars have locked up more of their young talent.
The team announced today that they have signed Zach Bolton and Edge Lambert, both 2001-born forwards drafted in the 7th round of the 2016 WHL Bantam draft.
The Cougars have now signed 6 of their first 7 picks from that draft.
Bolton has 14 points in 22 games with the BCMML’s Vancouver Northwest Giants this season, while Lambert has 6 points in Saskatchewan’s Midget AAA League.
In their final bantam seasons last year, Bolton had 57 points in 46 games and Lambert helped guide his Notre Dame Hounds to a Saskatchewan Bantam League Championship.
The B.C. division leading Cats see their next action Friday night in Red Deer.
