The Prince George Cougars have added depth to their blue line, acquiring 18-year-old defenceman Cameron MacPhee from the Medicine Hat Tigers in return for a seventh-round pick in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft.

MacPhee has a goal and 36 penalty-minutes in 20 games with the Tigers this season.

It’s the fifth deal the Cougars have made in the last nine days.

The WHL trade deadline is Wednesday at 2PM Pacific.
