Regina, Sask. - The Regina Pats have acquired 2004-born forward Tye Spencer from the Kamloops Blazers in exchange for 2002-born forward Drew Englot.

Spencer, 17, has totalled 11 points (3G-8A) in 32 games with the Blazers so far this season. The Saskatoon, Sask. native was drafted by Kamloops in the third round, 50th overall in the 2019 WHL Prospects Draft. The 5-foot-8, 145 lb. winger scored two goals in 16 games during his rookie season last year after tallying 24 points (13G-11A) in 35 games with the Saskatoon Contacts during the 2019-20 season. Prior to playing for the Contacts, Spencer scored 59 goals in 31 games for the Saskatoon Maniacs U15 AA team during the 2018-19 season, the most goals of any U15 AA player in the province.

Englot, 19, scored 16 points (6G-10A) while playing in all 32 games for the Pats prior to the trade. The Candiac, Sask. native played parts of three seasons with the Pats from 2019-2022, totalling 40 points (20G-20A) in 112 games after he was acquired from the Lethbridge Hurricanes in 2019 in exchange for a fourth-round pick in 2022. The 6-foot-2, 198 lb. centre attended the Edmonton Oilers rookie development camp this past September.

"Drew has been a valuable player for us in his time here and grown as a player and person," Regina Pats GM and Head Coach John Paddock said. "This was a chance to get a younger high skilled player in Tye [Spencer] that will fit in with our 2004 and 2005-born players. We wish Drew the best in Kamloops and thank him for his efforts."
