It hasn’t been the start to the season the Prince George Cougars were expecting.
Two home games to start the year against Spokane and they were outscored 9-3.
That following a 5-1 loss Saturday night, where the Chiefs shut things down in the neutral zone, not allowing the Cougars to gain much offensive zone access.
Scoring came from a number of sources for the Chiefs as 5 different players chipped in with a goal including Hudson Elynuik,Eli Zummack, Rykr Cole and Nolan Reid.
For the Cougars Jared Bethune had the lone tally, in his first game of the season.
Both teams went 0/4 with the man advantage.
Taylor Gauthier, who was the first round draft pick for the Cats in the 2016 Bantam draft made his WHL debut in the losing effort.
The Cougars will host the Kelowna Rockets Friday night at CN Centre.
