The Regina Pats Hockey Club is pleased to announce they have signed 16-year-old defenceman Makai Mitchell to a standard WHL Player Agreement.
Mitchell (6’1, 192) was listed by the Pats during the 2017-18 season and attended his first training camp in Regina in 2018.
“We are really excited about this signing,” said Pats General Manager John Paddock. “Makai was very impressive at training camp and we couldn’t be happier that he chose the WHL and the Regina Pats.”
The Fort Collins, Colorado product played the 2017-18 season with the Rocky Mountain Roughriders 16U of the NAPHL. He scored four goals and had seven points in 17 games.
The Pats continue the 2018 preseason tonight in Brandon against the Wheat Kings at 6:30 Regina time. They will return home to host the Wheat Kings on Saturday at 7 at the Brandt Centre. Tickets are $10 at the door.
