Yet another player has walked away from the Prince George Cougars.
Daulton Siwak, a 19-year-old forward who is fifth in team scoring, informed Cougars general manager Dallas Thompson on Sunday night he was leaving.
"He told us that he was going to go home and ponder his life and think about what he wants to do," Thompson said Tuesday afternoon.
Siwak, a right-winger from Olds, Alta., has nine goals and 17 points in 38 games this Western Hockey League season. He played in weekend home games against the Kelowna Rockets and went pointless in 4-2 and 8-4 losses.
Siwak is in his second season with the Cougars. In 66 outings, he has 19 goals and 32 points.
Siwak follows in the footsteps of forward Alex Forsberg, who didn't return to the team after the Christmas break. Forsberg, who turned 18 on Jan. 4, is at home in Waldheim, Sask., awaiting a trade.
The WHL trade deadline is Thursday at 2 p.m.
The Cougars, ninth in the 10-team Western Conference, are in Portland tonight to face the first-place Winterhawks.
