At the other end of the ice, Charles Inglis led the Rebels with two goals against the Pats before being traded to Kamloops. The Pats look to break out of a four game slide. Meanwhile, the Rebels have been on a tear winning seven games in a row. Tonight's game can be heard on 620 CKRM starting with the Press Box Sports Bar Pre-Game Show at 6:35 p.m.

Lead Up: Pats Can't Overcome High Powered Raiders

The Raiders picked up where they left off Friday with a strong effort against the Pats. Matt Hewitt held Regina in the game early with some great saves, but couldn't stem the tide as the Raiders would score two in the first then three in the second and third periods. Colten Mayor scored both goals for the Pats to total four points in his last two games.

Jordan Eberle Jersey Retirement Night

The big night is finally here as Jordan Eberle's number 7 will be raised to the rafters of the Brandt Centre. Jordan will be available for an autograph session during the first intermission of tonight's game. Fans are encouraged to arrive at the game early to be in their seats for the pre-game ceremonies.

Breaking a Slump

After being held pointless for three games, Colten Mayor busted his slump this weekend with points in all three games. He has five points over that span (3G, 2A) and 18 points on the season. Mayor's two goals Sunday night pushed his career points total to 80.

Serious Streak

For the first time in eleven games, Morgan Klimchuk didn't register a point against the Prince Albert Raiders. Over the sixth longest point streak in the WHL this season, Klimchuk totaled 22 points.


The Pats goaltending duo of Matt Hewitt and Teagan Sacher is one of the best one-two punches in the league. The tandem is one of seven in the league in which both goalies feature a SV% over .900 (Hewitt - .914, Sacher - .901).

Quick Hits
