Pats D Ryker Evans named WHL player of week

Pats defenceman Ryker Evans is being recognized for his play in a pair of wins over Swift Current this past weekend by the Western Hockey League.

On Monday, the league named the 19-year-old from Calgary as its player of the week.

On Friday, October 29, Evans was a +2, and registered three shots on goal as the Pats won 4-1 at Swift Current. He followed that up one night later by having a goal and three assists in a 7-3 win.  That was the first four point game of his career.

Evans, who was a 2nd round draft pick of the Seattle Kraken in the 2021 NHL draft, has 11 points in 11 games this season.

The Pats are home Wednesday to Moose Jaw.
