The Week That Was
Friday, October 19th – Pats 3 Tri-City 6
The Pats found themselves fighting back against the Americans all night in a game that saw the Blue and White even up the contest three times. They wouldn’t be able to do it a fourth, though, as the Americans scored twice with the Pats net empty to wrap up the contest. Matt Hewitt picked up second star honours, making 36 saves in the loss.
Pats acquire F Colton Mayor from Red Deer for 2015 4th round WHL Bantam Draft Pick
Pats acquire D Stephen Hak from Red Deer for conditional 2015 6th round WHL Bantam Draft Pick
Quote of the Week
“It feels great, I’m really excited to be here. I have lots of family here, so once I was told I was coming here I was really excited.” – Colton Mayor on his trade to Regina
“Both trades were kind of facilitated by the fact that up front we have two significant injuries in D’Amico and Dryden Hunt and on the back end we only have seven D and Hand is hurt now so we’re down to six. We play five games in the next week so we needed to make some adjustments and we felt both of these guys can help our hockey club.”
– GM Chad Lang on the acquisition of Mayor and Hak
The Week Ahead
Tuesday, October 23rd – Pats @ Red Deer
The Pats go up against the Red Deer Rebels for the second time this season. In their first meeting at the Brandt Centre, Chandler Stephenson scored with a few ticks left on the clock to lift the Pats to a 4-3 win.
Wednesday, October 24th – Pats @ Kootenay
The Blue and White dropped their last decision at Western Financial Place in a game the Pats felt they had good chance to come away with a victory in the early stages of the game. Now they get a second crack at the Ice in the second game of this Alberta/Cranbrook road trip.
Friday, October 26th – Pats @ Lethbridge
It’s the first meeting of the season between the Pats and Hurricanes. The ‘Canes are off to a similar start as the Pats, featuring the same 5-6-1-0 record. Russell Maxwell leads the way for Lethbridge with 13 points in 12 games.
Saturday, October 27th – Pats @ Medicine Hat
Once again, the Pats wrap up a road trip at the Medicine Hat Arena against Hunter Shinkaruk and the Tigers. Last time out, Shinkaruk caught fire en route to downing the Pats on the evening and a Player of the Week nod. The Pats will have to contain the speedy forward to leave the Gas City with two points.
