Pats Leschyshyn Lost For the Year
The Regina Pats Hockey Club announced Monday, forward Jake Leschyshyn will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury.
The 17-year-old suffered the injury on February 3 in Saskatoon. “We are extremely disappointed for Jake” said Pats Head Coach and GM John Paddock. “He was having a great season and has been a big part of our success so far this year.”
Leschyshyn was enjoying a career year with 17 goals and 40 points in 47 games.
He was a member of Team Cherry at the 2017 CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game in late January. The NHL’s Central Scouting Service ranked Leschyshyn number 31 in North America in the midterm rankings for the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.
The Pats return to action Tuesday night at the Brandt Centre against the Everett Silvertips. Puck drop is at 7 p.m.
