The Cariboo Cougars will put their undefeated record on the line this weekend as they host the Greater Vancouver Canadians at Kin 1.
Both teams are off to hot starts offensively, with Canadians’ Kyle Uy leading the league with 11 points in four games, but three Cougars – Darren Hards, Steven Jandric and Austin Gray- all occupying top eight spots in league scoring.
Jandric and Gray, who both have four goals and three assists, are rekindling a connection that began when both were linemates together in bantam.
“We played together in bantam AAA and there’s a lot of chemistry there,” Jandric said. “We just look out for each other.”
Jandric who opened the season with a hat trick on opening night, said he feels more confident coming back for a second season with the Cougars. He credits the squad’s hot start to strong team play.
“Our forwards are amazing, our d-men are strong and our goalies are great too,” he said.
The Cougars (3-0-1) enter the third week of the BC Major Midget League season one point behind the league leading Vancouver NW Giants and one ahead of the Canadians and Fraser Valley Thunderbirds, both 3-1.
The weekend set begins Saturday at 4:45 p.m. and concludes Sunday at 11:30 a.m.
