As the Regina Pats prepare to play the Seattle Thunderbirds in the WHL final, the president of the team is amazed to see the level of support they are getting.
Todd Lumbard says it was the goal of Queen City Sports and Entertainment to make this team a winner knowing the Regina hockey community would embrace their efforts.
Lumbard says to see the Brandt Centre full well before face-off is a very special feeling as he knows that the hard work of the ownership group as well as the off-ice staff and the on-ice product John Paddock has put together is something the community has really accepted and supported.
Friday’s Game 1 and Saturday’s Game 2 will both be sold-out making it over 20 sellouts this season at the rink.
Lumbard knows there is still work to be done,but it says winning the Ed Chynoweth Cup and having a chance to win the Memorial Cup later this month in Windsor would be a perfect way to say thank-you to the community for their efforts.
