The Regina Pats needed a win on home ice in Game 2 of their WHL second round series against Swift Current after losing Game 1 in overtime, and while getting it, it may have come at a price.
While Regina won Game 2 by a score of 6-2, team captain Adam Brooks suffered a lower-body injury on the team’s first goal when he was hit at the Swift Current blueline. While Brooks tried to skate it off, he left moments later and did not return.
Austin Wagner had a pair for the winners while Sam Steel had two assists with Connor Hobbs and Nick Henry each registering a goal and an assist.
The teams will take the weekend off and resume the best-of-seven matchup in Swift Current Monday night in a 7 o’clock puck drop on 620 CKRM.
