Klippenstein Signs Extension.

The Prince George Cougars have signed Assistant General Manager and Director of Player Personnel Wade Klippenstein to a two-year contract extension.

Two years ago, it was clear that the Prince George Cougars needed to make changes. One of those changes involved a complete overhaul of the team's scouting staff. Enter Wade Klippenstein. Klippenstein has worked tirelessly over the past two seasons to improve the team's scouting staff, protected list, and outlook for the future.

“We’re pleased to have a new deal in place with Wade,” said Prince George Cougars General Manager Dallas Thompson. “He’s done an outstanding job with assembling his staff and with his first two Bantam Drafts.”

Thompson is very pleased with Klippenstein’s efforts over the past two seasons. The 1995 and 1996-born draft-picks have shown well at recent Training Camps, and Thompson credits Klippenstein and the scouting staff for the progress the Cougars have made in recent years.

“It is exciting to already see the rewards of our entire scouting staff's efforts,” said Klippenstein."I'm very grateful for the opportunity to continue building a winning team in Prince George"

Prior to his arrival in Prince George, Klippenstein worked in the Western Hockey League as a Head Scout for the Moose Jaw Warriors and as Head Coach for the Prince Albert Raiders.
