Cougars, Pats Swing Four-Player Trade
January 5, 2018
The Prince George Cougars Hockey Club have acquired forward Kjell Kjemhus (01), defenceman Ethan McColm (02), along with a third round and fifth round pick in the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft from the Regina Pats. In exchange, the Cougars sent the WHL playing rights of forward Jesse Gabrielle (97) and defenseman Jonas Harkins (00) to Regina.
Kjell Kjemhus (pronounced ‘Chell Shay-moose’) is from Grande Prairie, Alberta, and has split this season between the Pats and the Pursuit of Excellence (POE) Academy in Kelowna, BC. Kjemhus played three games with the Pats and has played 30 games at POE with their Midget Prep team in the Canadian Sport School Hockey League (CSSHL), and their U-18 team in the North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL). In 18 games in the CSSHL, Kjemhus has tallied four goals and seven points and has scored another four goals in 12 games in the NAPHL. He suited up for 13 playoff games last season with Regina, picking up one assist and was a plus one, as the Pats won the WHL’s Eastern Conference Championship. The 16-year-old left-winger was drafted by the Pats in the fourth round, 77th overall, in the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft. Kjemhus will wear number 12 with the Cougars.
