The Prince George Cougars closed out the 2022-23 regular season with Retro Night and a Mega 50/50 with a guaranteed Jackpot of at least $30,000.

The lucky winner was Violet Froese who took home a whopping $72,188 of over $144,000 raised. 

Those funds will be going directly to Cancer research and treatment right here in Prince George benefitting Dr. Robert Olson’s world-leading research in the field of precision radiation. 

The Cougars, Wood Wheaton Supercentre, and the BC Cancer Foundation have come together to make this Mega 50/50 possible.

In honour of fans past and present, the Cougars also wore throwback jerseys to bring back a lot of memories. The Cougars wore the traditional White Jersey with the logo that was worn from 1996-2008. These special threads were made possible by one of the Cougars partners in the Indigenous Policing Service.

Every fan that enters the building also received a free ballot to put in for the draw for a signed Retro Night jersey.

It was also a winning night for the team as the Cougars finished the night defeating the Kamloops Blazers 3-2.

Hudson Thornton and Riley Heidt scored in regulation time for the Cougars (37-24-6-1), who were outshot 45-17. Cougars goaltender Tyler Brennan stopped 43 of 45 shots.

Emmitt Finnie and Ashton Ferster scored for the Blazers (48-13-4-3).
