Cougars Odds and Ends.

Good morning,

I just wanted to provide a few updates for you as we all get back into the swing of things. The Cougars are set to welcome the Calgary Hitmen tomorrow night to CN Centre. It'll mark the first of two meetings this season between the clubs. You can expect a full preview posted either this afternoon or tomorrow morning, but for now, here is some more food for thought.

- Cougars Alumni forward Brett Connolly scored a goal 53 seconds into the third period while helping Canada to an 8-1 victory over Finland Monday at the World Junior Hockey Championships.

- TSN has announced this morning that Brett Connolly has been promoted to first-line duties with Team Canada. The entire story can be found here.

- Cougars defenceman Martin Marincin will be in action tonight with Slovakia as they face off against Latvia at the World Junior Hockey Championships. Marincin has represented Slovakia in two prior tournaments.

- Congrats to Prince George Cougars prospect defenceman Joseph Carvalho who scored once and added an assist for the Vancouver NW Giants during Day One of the Mac's Tournament in Calgary. Carvalho was named Player of the Game for Vancouver during their 6-2 loss to the UFA Bisons.

- Raymond Grewal had an assist for the Caribbo Cougars during their team's 4-2 loss to Pirati Chomutov.

- Jordan Harris and the Prince Albert Mintos defeated Brett Zarowny and the Leduc Chrysler Oil Kings 5-1. Harris was held off the score-sheet while Zarowny took the loss for Leduc.
