Fraser Celebrates WHL Milestone In Style.

Prince George Cougars forward Greg Fraser played in his 200th career Western Hockey League game on Saturday, October 29th against Vancouver. Fraser celebrated the milestone in fine fashion. He got his team on the scoreboard with a short-handed goal in the second, and was named the game’s third star in a 2-1 victory over Vancouver.

The win helped snap an eight game losing skid for the Cougars, and also helped Fraser regain some offensive confidence.

“The fact that I was able to get a goal was nice,” said Fraser. “My confidence has gone up, that’s for sure. I hope it can continue this weekend on Friday and Saturday against Kamloops.”

Fraser’s career has been unique in many respects. He was the last player selected in the 2007 WHL Bantam Draft. In fact Fraser was the only player selected in the 15th round of the draft and has had to do things the hard way in order to stay in the league for the past three full seasons.

“Fraser is very responsible,” said Prince George Cougars Head Coach Dean Clark. “He’s a reliable penalty-killer and has also contributed to our team offensively over the years.”

Fraser and the Cougars are back in action this weekend against the Kamloops Blazers.
