Calgary, AB – The Western Hockey League today announced that Devin Setoguchi of the Prince George Cougars has been named the HUSKY WHL Player of the Month for February.

Setoguchi, a product of Taber, AB, scored 11 goals and added 11 assists for 22 points in 14 games during the month of February, helping the Cougars to an 8-4-1-1 record in that span.
