Hawks Overwhelm Cougars, Complete Series Sweep

Kendra Frankle

The Winterhawks sweep the regular season against Prince George after beating them 4-1 at home ice on Sunday night. The Winterhawks improve to 12-1-1-0 at home and they are the second team in the division to reach 20 wins this year.

Johnny Ludvig opened the offense eight minutes into the game with a snapshot that beat rookie netminder Tyler Brennan high glove side. The Hawks captain has already doubled his goal scoring production from a season ago.

Prince George tied the game on an early second period power play, but Portland stretched the game to a two-goal lead before the end of 40 minutes. Robbie Fromm-Delorme netted his sixth point of the series, the eventual game-winning goal midway through regulation time and Jaydon Dureau added an insurance marker five minutes later on the power play to put the Hawks up 3-1.

The lead proved to be too much for Prince George to come back from and Seth Jarvis scored an empty net goal to secure the series sweep.


  • Portland only allowed five goals to Prince George in the four meetings this season. That is the fewest goals the Hawks have allowed the Cougars to score in their history.
  • Robbie Fromm-Delorme, Johnny Ludvig, and Seth Jarvis each had a goal and assist tonight, giving them six points head-to-head against Prince George in 2019-20. Tyson Kozak ended with a pair of assists, the second time he has done so in his Winterhawks career.
  • Joel Hofer leads the WHL with 20 wins.
  • Portland now has nine straight games against U.S. Division opponents, with the Everett Silvertips first coming to town on Friday, December 13 for a 7:00 p.m. game at the Moda Center.
