Sam Steel had five assists to reach the 300 point milestone in his WHL career Wednesday night, as the Regina Pats (25-20-5-0) took care of Saskatoon (23-23-2-1) by a score of 7-3 at the Brandt Centre.
Former Blade Cameron Hebig reached the 200 point mark as well, with two goals and an assist, Josh Mahura also had a four point night of his own.
Steel said with the Blades having the better of them so far this year and sitting in their rear view mirror, the win was big moving forward.
“Yeah it’s a big win,” Steel told Pats play-by-play voice Phil Andrews, after the game.
“They’ve got the best of us a few times this year and we knew that coming in, we wanted to get a win, and I think for probably 55 minutes we played some really good hockey,” Steel said.
With 303 career points, Steel is now 17th in Pats all time scoring.
The win gives the Pats a six point cushion on the Blades for the top wild card spot in the Eastern Conference.
The Pats will be off until Saturday afternoon, when they’ll travel to Swift Current in a game we’ll have for you on 620 CKRM.
