Ravensbergen shuts the door on Prince Albert

There may be more than one “Super Rookie” in Prince George.

Josh Ravensbergen stopped all 38 shots he faced to help lift the Prince George Cougars to a 5-0 win over the Prince Albert Raiders.

The Cougars’ rookie netminder picked up his third shutout in his fifth career WHL start in front of 2,532 fans at the Art Hauser Centre.

 “He battles and competes, they try to go short side on him a few times below the net, it didn’t phase him,” said Cougars Assistant Coach Carter Rigby on last night’s post game show on 94.3 the Goat.

The Cougars were outshot by the Raiders 38-24.

Nicholas McLennan scored his first WHL goal to open the scoring.

It was the usual suspects putting points on the board for the Cougars, as Zac Funk scored his league-leading 10th powerplay goal, Terik Parascak scored his league-leading 18th goal, and Koehn Ziemmer scored one of his one and added an assist.

“A great response game for the whole group,” Rigby said.

“You talk about being over .500 on the road trip and we got that here tonight. After the effort last night we had in Saskatoon we challenged the group and the older guys to be leaders and play the right way, hem things into their zone, all the little details and the cliché sayings that you have, but all in all a great response.”

The Cougars finished 3-2 their road swing through the WHL’s East Division.

The Cougars (12-5-0-0) sit atop the WHL’s Western Conference with 24 points.
