The Regina Pats Hockey Club is pleased to announce they have acquired 17-year-old goaltender Carter Woodside from the Kootenay ICE in exchange for a conditional 8th round pick in the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft.
Woodside (6’0, 161), from Asquith, Saskatchewan, was originally a 6th round pick by the ICE in the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft.
“We are really happy to acquire Carter,” said Pats General Manager John Paddock. “He will add some needed depth at the goalie position to our organization.”
Woodside played the 2017-18 season with the Prince Albert Mintos of the SMAHL. In 21 appearances he went 15-5-0 with a 2.53 goals against average and a .900 save percentage. In the playoffs, he appeared in three games, going 2-1 with a 1.69 goals against average and a .940 save percentage as the Mintos went to the league final against the Notre Dame Hounds.
The condition on the trade is based on the number of games played for Woodside during the 2018-19 season.
The Pats will kick off the 2018 pre-season on August 31 against the Swift Current Broncos at 7 p.m. at the Brandt Centre. Season tickets and 17-game packages for the 2018-19 season are available now by visiting reginapats.com.
