A big night from Jake Leschyshyn helped the Regina Pats put some distance between themselves and the Prince Albert Raiders in the WHL’s Eastern Division on Sunday at the Brandt Centre.
The 2nd round draft pick of the Vegas Golden Knights in this year’s NHL draft scored twice and added an assist as the Pats beat Prince Albert 4-1 to improve their record to 21-19-3.
Leschyshyn now has 28 points in 38 games on the season.
Bryan Lockner and Robbie Holmes had the other Pats goals. For Lockner, it is the 3rd straight game in which he has scored.
It was the first of a four-game homestand that will continue Wednesday when the Edmonton Oil Kings pay a visit in a 7 o’clock start.
