Handful of Pats players out a few weeks due to injuries

The Regina Pats have announced three of their players are out with injuries as the team continues its American road trip in the Pacific Northwest.

Forward Drew Englot had successful appendicitis surgery after he was diagnosed on Monday. He will miss two to four weeks as he recovers in hospital.

Defenceman Makai Mitchell is expected to miss six to eight weeks after suffering broken bones in his face following a altercation late in their win on Sunday versus Everett. The Silvertips were handed a $500 fine and Dawson Butt was given a suspension by the league, which has yet to be determined.

Defenceman Kyle Walker is out three to four weeks after taking a knee during Saturday’s loss against the Tri-City Americans from forward Landon Roberts. While Roberts was given a major penalty and game misconduct for the play, he was not suspended by the WHL.

The Pats take on the Portland Winterhawks Tuesday night with puck drop at 9:00 p.m. Saskatchewan time. Listen live on 620 CKRM with the pre-game show at 8:35 p.m.
