Two of the WHL’s three remaining winless teams faceoff in Swift Current Friday night.
Both the Regina Pats and Swift Current Broncos are 0-4-0-0 out of the gate despite coming close multiple times.
Pats Head Coach Dave Struch said through it all, his players are approaching the tough start with the right attitudes.
“Our guys have come in with a great attitude everyday,” Struch said. ” Even after the first weekend it was business as usual, we put it behind us and got better. The guys have done a great job coming to the rink with smiles,” Struch added.
It’s a given in junior hockey at any level, after success comes trying times. The early season struggles are no surprise to the Pats either.
“When we were building for last year and the year before, we knew we were going to come into a situation like this,” Struch said after practice Thursday. “The key is sticking with the process and making sure our older guys are accountable and good leaders, and that our younger guys are coming to the rink everyday and working hard,” he added.
