If the prospect’s pool wasn’t full before, it’s certainly overflowing now for the Prince George Cougars.
Today (Friday) the WHL club signed forward Jett Lajoie, the 28th overall selection in the 2022 WHL Prospects Draft, to a Standard Player Agreement.
“Jett is one of the best players in Manitoba in his age group. He is a leader and plays to win,”
said Cougars Director of Scouting, Bob Simmonds.
“We were very fortunate to have had the opportunity to draft Jett as I had no expectation, he would be there for us in the 2nd round. He
is the type of player teams need to have success. We are thrilled to have Jett commit to the Cougars.”
Lajoie played for the Winnipeg Bruins Brown U15 AAA last season, leading his club in goals, assists, and points (26G-19A-45PTS).
