The Prince George Cougars have added another NHL draft pick to their blue-line by acquiring Brendan Guhle from the Prince Albert Raiders.
Guhle, a second-round pick of the Buffalo Sabres in 2015, joins three other NHL drafted defencemen on the Western Conference-leading Cougars. Going back to the Raiders are defenceman Max Martin, left-winger Kolby Johnson, plus a first-round draft pick in 2018 and a third-round pick in 2019.
“This is a huge day for the Prince George Cougars franchise and we are very excited to add one of the very best defenceman in the Western Hockey League to our organization,” said Cougars general manager Todd Harkins in a press release. “Brendan Guhle is a game changer who instantly makes us a tougher team to play against.”
In 15 games this season, Guhle has two goals, two assists and 10 penalty minutes.
