Regina, Saskatchewan – The Regina Pats are proud to announce that Garrett Mitchell has officially tendered a contract with the NHL’s Washington Capitals.

The 19 year old native of Regina has had a break out offensive year topping career highs in goals (18), assists (32) and points (52) all as captain of the Regina Pats. Garrett hit a career high for points in a game with a 4 assist night in a 6-5 victory past the Brandon Wheat Kings on March 5th at the Brandt Centre.
