Regina, Saskatchewan – The rookies were back on the ice to start day two of the 2016 Regina Pats Training Camp. Team White took on Team Navy for a third time. Navy won the first two matchups on Day One.
The opening frame was scoreless with White leading in shots on goal 15-12. In the second, Team White broke the deadlock on the power play when Michael Ladyman found a loose puck left side, beating Dawson Rattai. Riley Krane tied things up for Team Blue later in the frame. The period ended 2-1 White on a marker for Luc Masse. Duncan Pierce tied it up for Navy in the third. It did not last as Logan Nijhoff got the pull ahead goal and that is how things would end.
As was the case on Day One, the vets took to the ice in practices following the rookie scrimmage.
The afternoon scrimmages started with the rookies: Team Navy and Team White meeting for a fourth time. The teams traded goals early on from White’s Kjell Kjemhus and Navy’s Spencer Weinkauf.
