It will be your last chance to see the Regina Pats for a while this weekend.
The 5-12 Pats will be on home ice Friday to take on the Tri-City Americans with the Swift Current Broncos coming in Saturday night in 7 o’clock starts before the team hits the road for what will be a seven-game road trip which will include stops through the B.C Division.
After a 1-6 start to the season, the Pats appear to have found some traction as they have gone 4-6 in their last 10 with their top line of Austin Pratt, Nick Henry and Jake Leschyshyn leading the way. The trio have combined to score 15 goals and 16 assists for 31 points in the last seven games. Henry is riding a seven-game point streak with six goals and six assists, Leschyshyn has points in five straight with four goals and five assists, while Austin Pratt has four goals and four assists in that stretch. This season, the line has combined for 25 goals and 59 points through 17 games.
Saturday’s game will be Military Appreciation night with members of the Canadian military past and present being recognized.
The Brandt Centre will have a military feel with camouflage rink boards and the Pats will be raffling Logan Nijhoff’s game ready Blue PPCLI Jersey from the 2018 Memorial Cup opening game against the Hamilton Bulldogs.
The Pats will be raising money for Last Post Fund with proceeds of sales from the 22fresh x Pats camo hoodies going to the Fund. Established in 1909, the Last Post Fund is a non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure that no Veteran is denied a dignified funeral and burial, as well as a military gravestone, due to insufficient funds at time of death. Since its inception, the LPF has arranged for the respectful funeral and burial of more than 153,000 financially challenged Veterans.
620 CKRM will have both games for you starting at 7
