Forward Ty Smilanic, a third round pick in the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft, scored once and had two assists in three games at the camp.
Defenceman Coleton Panowyk, who the Pats drafted in the fourth round in 2017, picked up two penalty minutes in three games.
Finally, goaltender Jackson Dylla, a sixth round pick, played in two games at the camp, recording a .909 save percentage and a 3.00 GAA. He allowed just three goals in his two appearances.
Earlier in the month, three other Pats prospects played in the USA Hockey National Select 16 Development Camp.
