The Regina Pats have one of six players at NHL training camps back in Regina.
On Tuesday, the team welcomed the return of forward Filip Ahl from the Ottawa Senators.
Ahl, a 19 year old left winger, was taken by the Pats in the CHL Import Draft after he was selected in the 4th round of the 2015 draft.
Ahl is expected to be in the starting lineup Friday when the Pats open the season against Prince Albert in a game you will hear on 620 CKRM starting at 7.
At this time, the Pats aren’t expecting Adam Brooks (Toronto), Sam Steel (Anaheim), Connor Hobbs (Washington), Sergei Zborovskiy (New York Rangers) or Austin Wagner (Los Angeles) to play as they are still at NHL camps.
