The Prince George Cougars made 6 trades leading up to the WHL’s deadline

Among those sent off were Dennis Cholowski, Kody McDonald, and Josh Anderson

Cholowski was dealt to Portland for two players, and five bantam draft picks, including a 2018 first rounder

“There’s some sadness for sure. I got to know all of my teammates, most of the community, and all the fans of course; I had a really great time here. At the end of the day though, you got to play hockey, so I’ll be moving on to Portland and I’m really excited about it.”
