Prince George, B.C.- Today is your chance to meet and greet the new owners of the Prince George Cougars and hear about the  start of "A New Ice Age".

The event starts at 11:30 this morning outside the CN Centre and you are invited to  hear what EDGEPRo Sports and Entertainment has in mind for the team.

Following  the WHL approval of the sale of the team to EDGEPRO,  company spokesman Greg Pocock called the sale, “a dream come true for out ownership group.”

Pocock, along with  Ernest Ouellet, Ray Fortier and John Pateman and NHL players Dan Hamhuis and Eric Brewer make up “EDGEPRO”.   “Dan Hamhuis and Eric Brewer bring a professional hockey credibility to our team” says Pocock. Both Hamhuis and Brewer will be at today's event.  “Dan and Eric are both Northern B.C. boys, and their wives are from Prince George.  Things are different in the North.  We understand how things need to be done in the North and have a proven track record of success in our various businesses.  We are looking forward to rolling up our sleeves and getting to work right away” says Pocock.

Right after  the new owners  have their chat with members of the media,(scheduled from 12:15 - 1:00)  there will be a special cake cutting ceremony.

“We are all very excited to begin a new era of WHL hockey in Prince George with citizens of the entire region” says Pocock, “We are confident that our business plan, our local ownership group and the management team we are assembling will produce success on the ice, and excitement in the stands and in the community”.

Cant wait to hear about season ticket details. Will be all over them!
For those of us that are working & can't attend, will this meeting be broadcast? I'd love to hear what they have to say but can't make it :-(
This is all well and good but if you cannot bring yourself to be optimistic about this new bunch , is there a chance you can be labelled "A New Ice Age" denier?
"Time will either promote you or expose you."

Unless they get some new ice, it is the same old ice!

They get new ice every year. :)
Getting all the nhl guys on the ownership of the kamloops blazers really helped that team. Travel and a fan base that is not die-hard will stump this new group too. Just what it is.
