Griffin signed with the Cougars in September and played in 30 games this past season.

The Jeff Zorn Award is named after former Cougar, Dr. Jeff Zorn. Zorn was originally selected by the Moose Jaw Warriors 67th overall in the 1994 WHL bantam draft. He joined the Cougars prior to the start of the 1997-98 season and played in 130 career regular season games. He graduated from medical school at the University of Alberta in 2009, and he currently lives on Vancouver Island, working as part of the Urology Team at North Island Urology in Comox.

On Tuesday the Cougars will announce the Brett Connolly Award for Rookie of the Year, and the Dorothy Johnson Memorial Award for Fan Favourite.
