A season of high expectations begins for the Regina Pats Friday night.
For the first time in a long time, the Pats are thought of as contenders for the WHL championship as they prepare to begin the season with a home game against the Prince Albert Raiders.
Regina is coming off a season that saw them take the Memorial Cup host Red Deer Rebels to a 7th and deciding game in an Eastern semi-final before bowing out of the playoffs.
Many of the players who were on that team are back, but some will not be in the lineup Friday due to the fact they are still at NHL training camps.
620 CKRM is your official voice of the Regina Pats. Join us at 6:35 for the pre-game show followed by the play-by-play with Phil Andrews.
