The Scouting Report
In their attempt to bring back another Memorial Cup Championship to the Queen City, the Pats follow 2012 Rookie of the Year Morgan Klimchuk and left wing Lane Scheidl, both of whom lead the team in points.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
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.
