Pats add Goalie and defenceman in 2023 CHL Import Draft



The Regina Pats utilized both of their selections in the 2023 CHL Import Draft.

On Wednesday, the Pats used the 36th overall selection and picked goalie Ewan Huet.

Huet is a dual citizen of Switzerland and France, and is the son of former NHL goalie, Cristobal, who won a Stanley Cup championship with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2012.

Last season with Lausanne U20, the 6’0 netminder played in 31 games with a 14-12-2 record and G.A.A. of 2.72.

The 2005-born goaltender has represented Switzerland in international tournaments.

With their second round selection, Regina picked Norwegian defenceman Stian Solberg with the 96th pick.

The 2005-born defenceman spent last season in Norway with Valerenga and had four points (1G-3A) in 18 games. He also represented Norway at the World Junior U18 Championships.
