The Regina Pats have made a large splash on trade deadline day Tuesday.

Going the other way is forward Lane Zablocki, defenceman Dawson Barteaux, a first round pick in 2017, another first rounder in either 2018 or 2019 along with a conditional third round pick in 2020.
The Pats acquired Zablocki from Prince George in 2015, he recorded 27 goals and 35 assists for the Pats in 105 games.
Barteaux was a first round draft pick for the Pats in 2015, he suited up in 18 games this year, recording two assists.
