Guenter Hired As Goaltending Coach.

20-year-old Goaltender Drew Owsley will have a familiar face coaching him during the 2011-2012 season. Owsley's long-time goaltending coach Phil Guenter has offically been hired by the Prince George Cougars for the upcoming season.

Guenter, 31, is from Lethbridge and has been coaching goaltenders for the past 12 years, 10 of which have been spent with Owsley.

Guenter has also coached goaltenders at the University of Lethbridge.

Make no mistake, Guenter was not brought on simply for Owsley. G.M. Dallas Thompson and Head Coach Dean Clark have done their homework, and they know full-well that Guenter will help mentor the younger net-minders in the Cougars system.

Guenter's primary principle is "Never give up on the puck,"

He will be on hand during the Prince George Cougars training camp which kicks off tomorrow at 2:00 at C.N. Center.
