The Regina Pats hit the road for their first extended trip of the season as they visit the Lethbridge Hurricanes Wednesday night.
The team has not had the start they have been looking for winning just once in six tries, but as they head out Head Coach Dave Struch says there is still a lot of positivity.
‘The record doesn’t show it, but I think we have done a great job with our attitude, character and work ethic.” Struch said. “Getting out on the road will be good for a variety of reasons with one of them being we get a chance to spend time with another and get to know one another. It’s just a matter of time before things start coming into place.
Captain Jake Leschyshyn won’t play in Lethbridge because of a one-game suspension for a spearing incident in a loss Saturday to Brandon. Like Struch, he says the mood in the room is not what you would think despite the tough start.
“It’s good!” Leschyshyn declared. “We’ve done a lot of really good things. The score didn’t show it Saturday night, but if it wasn’t for five or seven minutes it could have been a different result as the play didn’t indicate the final score.
After Wednesday’s game, the team will be in Cranbrook Friday to take on Kootenay with a Sunday afternoon stop in Calgary. 620 CKRM will have all games for you starting with Wednesday’s game which begins at 7 with Phil Andrews.
