It’s time to defend the den!

The first home game of the 2019-20 season for the Prince George Cougars is set for Sept. 20 and will face-off against the Vancouver Giants.

The two B.C. rivals met nine times last season, including four at the CN Centre.

The eventual division-champion Giants prevailed over the Cats eight times, including all four of Prince George’s home-side battles.

The Cats’ lone victory against Vancouver last year came on the road; a 1-0 shutout in November.

The Cougars-Giants clash will be one of 34 home tilts games played in the northern capital, part of the Western Hockey League’s (WHL) 68-game season.

Prince George will be the opponents for the Victoria Royals' home opener on Sept. 27.
