From the Prince George Citizen:
The Cariboo Cougars will get to play for a national hockey championship.
They've got a spot already wrapped up now that Prince George has won the right to host the Telus Cup midget national championship in April 2017. In a Hockey Canada vote, Prince George was picked over competing bid from Langley.
"Prince George is a hockey community along with the north and what we did with the Canada Winter Games, hosting Canada on that stage, was outstanding for us to do here and Hockey Canada and BC Hockey are confident that we'll knock it out of the park," said Trevor Sprague, head coach and general manager of the Cariboo Cougars, who will have an automatic berth in the 2017 championship as host team.
A Cariboo Cougars committee headed by Shawn Rice and Jane Newman put together the bid package and submitted it on March 11, 10 days after Hockey Canada asked the local group to apply to host to the tournament.
"We only had eight days to put it together, everybody else had six months, so it was quite a whirlwind week with meetings," said Sprague. "It was outstanding what Shawn Rice and Jane Newman were able to put together."
Prince George hosted the event in 2001, when it was known as the Air Canada Cup. The midget Cougars had applied to host the 2012 tournament but lost out to Leduc, Alta. Although the committee had short notice to brush up on its 2012 bid, it received strong support from committee members Andy Beesley of the WHL Cougars, Jack Fomenoff of CIF Construction and John Morrison of Western Equipment. Sprague said CN Centre manager Glen Mikkelson and mayor Lyn Hall also backed the bid to help sway the Hockey Canada vote.
