The Prince George Cougars signed Cariboo Cougars Alumni Brogan O’Brien to a standard WHL player agreement earlier this afternoon. O’Brien has spent the past two seasons with the Prince George Spruce Kings of the BCHL, and was listed by NHL Central Scouting in September of last year. The Cougars acquired O’Brien’s rights from Kelowna in January, in exchange for 20 Year Old Chance Braid.
Cougars GM Todd Harkins had this to say about O’Brien:
“He’s excelled at every level he’s played at, including the B.C. Major Midget League with the Cariboo Cougars, and the BCHL with the Prince George Spruce Kings. Brogan has professional hockey aspirations and the Prince George Cougars will provide the necessary development to help him get there. He’s a very skilled, big-bodied forward that imposes
his size and strength on opposing teams to create offense. He has a very high hockey IQ that allows him to make the players around him better. He will be a big part of our core group moving forward on a team that is already rich with 1997-born talent.” O’Brien’s BCMML Coach, Trevor Sprague was excited to have an alumni join the WHL Cougars. “He’s a great kid, and he seems excited to join his new teammates,” said Sprague.
O’Brien was an affiliate player for the Cariboo Cougars during the 2012-13 season, and made the 2013-14 Cats as a 16 year old, posting six points in just four games to start the season before being called up by the Spruce Kings for the remainder of the year.
