Chartier scored 1st and 2nd goals of WHL career

Rookie 16 year-old forward Rourke Chartier came close to doing something special Saturday night in Prince George. Chartier scored twice in the Kelowna Rockets 7-5 win over the Cougars,  coming up one goal shy of a hat trick. Scoring three goals in a game as a first year 16 year-old player is rare when it comes to the Kelowna Rockets organization. The last Rockets player to accomplish the feat was Shane McColgan against Regina in 2009. Regardless of failing to join McColgan in the record books, Chartier was all smiles with an impressive three point game (2+1=3). You will hear more from Chartier as the season rolls along. The Rockets first round pick in the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft is a special player.
