The Week That Was
Friday, November 16th – Pats 3 @ Giants 4 SO
The Pats came back from two goal and one goal deficits in their contest with the Giants, but couldn’t come back one final time in the shootout as Thomas Foster’s tally in the seventh round held up as the winner. Morgan Klimchuk scored with less than a minute left in the contest to send the game to extra time and Lane Scheidl had a three point night in the loss.
Saturday, November 17th – Pats 3 @ Victoria 2
Like the previous night, the Pats found themselves fighting from behind in the second period. After failing to register a shot until the latter half of the middle frame, the Pats turned it around and scored two quick goals to take a lead into the third. The Royals fought back and tied the game with 2:32 left, but Morgan Klimchuk came up clutch again, scoring the game winning goal with 25 seconds left. Teagan Sacher was named the first star, making 32 saves in the win while Luke Fenske turned in a strong effort and added three assists.
Pats sign defenceman Alex Theriau (’92)
Quote of the Week
“It’s eye opening to see how tough it is and how rough the lifestyle is. The best living conditions they have are less than acceptable in most people’s eyes.” – Griffin Mumby on his experience with Project First Goal in East Hastings
“Where they started is the same place as where some of us started and to see them end up there is scary. If there are family issues you should seek help because with a couple wrong decisions, you can end up here and it’s not a good place to be.” – Trent Ouellette talking about his night in East Hastings with Project First Goal

Project First Goal
Six of the Pats spent Sunday with the Vancouver Police Service learning about the affects of drugs before taking to the streets of one of the most drug addled neighbourhoods in Canada, East Hastings. The players heard the stories of some of the addicts who live there to bring their message about making the right choices to schools back in Regina.
Now available at the Pats Office are #MovemberForBD T-Shirts and Bracelets. The T-Shirts sell for 25 dollars while the Bracelets are 10 dollars. The proceeds from these go towards supporting former Regina Pats Captain, Brandon Davidson in his fight against cancer.
