The Regina Pats were scheduled to play a game in Prince Albert last night against the Raiders before returning home to play their first game at Brandt Centre since Nov. 10 against the Spokane Chiefs.
Included in that stretch was their annual Agribition-induced west coast road-trip. Despite suffering a slew of injuries, including the loss of their top three centres (Chandler Stephenson, Trent Ouellette and Emil Sylvegard) and number one defenceman and team captain (Colton Jobke), the Pats had a reasonably successful trip, securing six of a possible ten points in five games.
On the bright side, the team has been getting solid play from their two goaltenders (Matt Hewitt and Teagan Sacher). They’ll face a tough test tonight, though, as Spokane currently sports the third best record in the WHL’s Western Conference. Game time at Brandt Centre is 7 p.m.
