The Regina Pats are getting two of their top players back from NHL camps.
The Anaheim Ducks returned Sam Steel on Thursday while the Washington Capitals did the same with Connor Hobbs.
Steel was Anaheim’s first round draft pick this year and saw action in one pre-season game with the Ducks. He was Regina’s 2nd leading scorer last season registering 70 points in the regular season, and another 16 in the playoffs.
Hobbs was a 5th round pick of the Washington Capitals and like Steel, played in one pre-season game where he had an assist.
He had 41 points in 58 games last season.
The return of these two means the only Pats players still at an NHL camp are Adam Brooks (Toronto), and Austin Wagner (Los Angeles).
The Pats play Edmonton Friday night at the Brandt Centre in the first of a 5 game homestand.
Game time is 7 PM with all the action able to be heard on 620 CKRM
