Cougars add two players in a deal with Chase

The Cougars announced Wednesday night that they have acquired Ryan Okino (98) and Seamus Collins (99) from the Chase Heat of the KIJHL. Both players will be key parts of the Cougars roster for the 2018-2019 season.

Cougars GM Brody Coulter had this to say about the new Cougars.

Seamus Collins

Ryan Okino

 

“Its not often a defenseman of Ryan’s caliber becomes available. Ryan is going to be a huge contributor for us on the back and we’re very excited to have him be a part of our program.

“Seamus is a player we will be looking to create some offence for us this year. His natural position is centre and that’s something we’ve been looking to add throughout the offseason.”

In 45 regular season games last year with Chase, Ryan scored 6 goals and had 22 assists. In 17 regular season games Seamus had 5 goals and 6 assists.

Jordan Smith will be on the phone tomorrow with both players to get their input on the trade. Stay tuned for that on our Social Media. Instagram and Twitter.
