KELOWNA, B.C. - Jordon Cooke made 32 saves for Kelowna as the Rockets held on for a 3-0 win over the Prince George Cougars in WHL action Thursday night.

Myles Bell scored twice and Colton Sissons, with a penalty-shot goal that opened the scoring midway through the first period, also scored for Kelowna (5-5-1).

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
