The Regina Pats will be showing off some brand new threads when they host the Prince Albert Raiders Saturday afternoon for their home opener.

The team announced Tuesday, that brand new third jerseys will be worn by the club for the 2021/22 regular season.

“The design of the jersey is a reflection of the team’s 104-year history that dates back to when the club was founded in 1917 as the Regina Patricia Hockey Club – namesake of Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry during the First World War,” the team said in a release.

“The jersey features a colorful version of a WWI era PPCLI military badge on the front. This is referred to as a “sweetheart badge or brooch” that was pinned on clothing. A Canadian military chevron is present on both sleeves and a diagonal stripe across the jersey pays respect to the sash worn in ceremony by infantry soldiers. Additionally, the tone on tone Pats shoulder logo is a subtle nod to the team that doesn’t distract from the overall design.”

For those coming to Saturday’s home opener, the new jerseys will be available at the Pats store.

They will be available for purchase online as well, starting October 2.

The puck drops for the home opener Saturday afternoon at 1:00 p.m.
