In what is destined to be a difficult year for the Prince George Cougars, veteran defenceman Dallas Jackson is a 20-year-old the organization knows it can depend on.
We spoke with the native of Edson, Alberta in Kelowna at the team's hotel. The 6'2, 190-pounder missed 11 games this season with a shoulder injury. He has recently returned to the lineup and will be expected to log between 20- and 30- minutes per game. A puck moving defencman, Jackson is a key power play contributor and also understands his role as a mentor of sorts in Prince George. He has also played for the Red Deer Rebels and Regina Pats. During the off-season, he hangs his hat in Edson, working on the grounds crew at the Edson Golf & Country Club.
