Hockey – Do you mean Ice Hockey ?
The national sporting obsession in Canada is Hockey – and there is only one type of hockey here and that is the type played on Ice. We thought we’d better catch a game while we were in Canada and the ever helpful Prince George visitor centre let us know that there was a pre-season match taking place between Prince George Cougars and the Edmonton Oil Kings at the CN Centre in town.
The game wasn’t the most skilled but after the first period got pretty aggressive and the body slams got harder as the game went on.
Anyway the final score was 4-1 to the Oil Kings who looked the much the better side. We later learnt that the best Prince George players were away on loan to NHL sides for pre-season training and would likely be returned in a couple of weeks.
