Firsts for Jung, Witkowski ... another goal for Tyrell ... Barberio left off the list
Prince George Cougars 1 @ Lethbridge Hurricanes 6
C/W Dana Tyrell, PG: 0-0-0, -6, 2 PIM (elbowing)
Season totals: 11 GP, 9-4-13, -9, 12 PIM
C Mitch Fadden, LET: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM (roughing)
Season totals: 4 GP, 2-1-3, E, 2 PIM
G Torrie Jung, LET: Did not dress.
Lethbridge, who got back Carolinaâ€™s first rounder Zach Boychuk this week, outshot PG 40-11 in the game. Boychuk had a goal for the â€˜Canes. Jung has joined the Hurricanes, but did not dress as rookie Michael Tadjdeh got the start for Lethbridge. Heâ€™s the current No.2 behind Metsola. It was written Lethbridge acquired Jung to give them an experienced back-up, but Jung may not be in game-shape yet after sitting out all of the season so far. Fadden has not registered a point in two games.
Tyrellâ€™s minus-6 night comes on the heels of a minus-5 night four games ago. Danaâ€™s brother, Cory, will miss six weeks for PG due to a kneecap injury.
