Sam Steel and Austin Wagner will play their last game for the Regina Pats for a while Friday night when they take on the Swift Current Broncos in a 7 o’clock start at the Brandt Centre.
The two will leave after the game for the Canadian world junior camp which begins in Blainville, Quebec tomorrow with both hoping to be wearing Canadian colours at the World Juniors which start on Boxing Day.
Filip Ahl and Sergei Zborovskiy have been invited to play for their home countries, but they will be here until early next week before joining up with Sweden and Russia respectively.
The Pats go into the contest with a record of 20-2-5 for 45 points which is eight points better than 2nd place in Moose Jaw in the Eastern Division.
That 45 points also leaves them atop the Eastern Conference–two better than Medicine Hat.
