The Scouting Report
As the Western Hockey League skates toward the back half of the 2015–16 season, the Regina Pats control their own fate. Although not a lock for the playoffs—the team remains outside the top three in its division—they would take the top wild-card spot if the season ended in the first week of December. Of course, several months of hockey still remain, so the Pats’ goal is to capitalize on every opportunity to bolster their position or to build a time machine. 2016 first-round NHL draft prospect Sam Steel, center Adam Brooks, a top-15 scorer in the league with 31 points on 12 goals, and goalie Tyler Brown lead the charge as the squad welcomes opponents to the Brandt Center. The slate includes games against Saskatoon and Swift Current, both of whom will be aiming to dislodge Regina from its foothold in the wild-card race.
When the Regina Pats slid out onto the ice in 1917, their sweaters read “The Patricias,” in honor of Princess Patricia of Connaught, and they had little tolerance for opponents who dared giggle at the name. Of the original teams in that early era, the Pats have had the last laugh, as they are the only ones still standing, making them North America’s oldest Junior Hockey franchise.
Since the days of horse-drawn zambonis, the Pats have taken several championships. They won the Memorial Cup in 1925, 1930, and 1974, and they also took the Western Hockey League Championship in 1974 and 1980. In addition to preparing more than 100 players for careers in the NHL, the Pats have also sent the most athletes to play for Canada in the World Junior Hockey Championships.
