REGINA – The ping pong balls have bounced the Regina Pats into the 12th pick of the upcoming WHL U.S. Priority Draft.

The WHL announced the results of its U.S Draft lottery Thursday, as teams prepare for the December 8th event, featuring 2006-born players who reside in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

The Pats will also select 33rd overall in the two-round U.S. Draft, which will be the second in the league’s history after the inaugural event was staged last March.

Regina selected centreman Matteo Michels from Colleyville, Texas (18th overall), and Brogan Young from Burbank, Washington (27th overall) last season.
