The Regina Pats have made a deal with the Kootenay Ice to get a goaltender.
The Pats, who start rookie camp at the Brandt Centre Tuesday morning, are sending a conditional 8th round pick in the 2019 bantam draft to the Ice for Carter Woodside.
The 17 year old is a Saskatchewan boy as he comes from Asquith.. The 6 foot, 161 pound Woodside played last season for the Prince Albert Mintos of the Saskatchewan Midget Triple A league where he was 15-5 with a goals against average of 2.53.
The Pats were thin at goaltender going into main camp. It was hoped Jacob Wassermann would be able to step into a uniform this season, but he was one of the players injured in the tragic Humboldt Broncos bus crash this past April so a body was needed.
The Pats open up WHL pre-season play August 31 at home against Swift Current.
