Kjell Kjemhus is heading back to Saskatchewan.
The Prince George Cougars have traded the 17-year-old forward to the Moose Jaw Warriors for a seventh-round pick in the 2020 WHL bantam draft. In his second stint with the Cougars this season after he was brought back from junior A, Kjemhus, a five-foot-10, 187-pound native of Grande Prairie, Alta., had two assists and 14 penalty minutes in five games.
In 28 games with the Cougars, dating back to January, when he arrived in a trade from the Regina Pats, Kjemhus had two goals and six points. He started the season in the BCHL with the Vernon Vipers and picked up one assist in 10 games.
The Cougars roster is now down to 23 players - 13 forwards, eight defencemen and two goalies.
The Cats begin an extended roadtrip this weekend in Portland, Ore., where they'll face the Winterhawks Friday and Saturday.
