Blades 3 Pats 2



The Regina Pats returned home Tuesday night to the Brandt Centre after a four game road trip where hey went 1 and 3. The struggling Saskatoon Blades were in town, 3 points back of the Blue and White in the East Division. The Pats mixed up their lines coming into the game with Emil Sylvegard centering Colten Mayor and Jack Rodewald. Lane Scheidl moved to centre for the game with Morgan Klimchuk and Dyson Stevenson on the wings. As well Stephen Hak checked back into the lineup on the defensive end after missing the entire road trip with an injury. The Brandt Centre was kind to the Pats so far in the season as they came in with a 4-2-1-0 record on home ice while he Blades had been their best on the road with a 4 and 4 record. Matt Hewitt made his 11th start in goal for the Blue and White who were looking to snap a 2 game losing streak.

In the first period the Pats went to the powerplay in the first minute thanks to a delay of game penalty on the Blades. Then on the man advantage Matt Hewitt took a hit from a forechecking Saskatoon player and the Pats went up 5 on 3 early. They would cash 1:45 in as Lane Scheidl scored from the right side on a beautiful shot over the shoulder of Blade goaltender Andrey Makarov and it was 1-0. Colby Williams and Morgan Klimchuk got the assists. After the the Blades came back and really started to push. However Matt Hewitt was sharp in the frame making 16 stops. Saskatoon had two chances of their own with the man advantage but the Pats powerplay looked solid not giving much up in terms of scoring chances and kept the Blades off the board in the first period. Luke Fenske thought he had his second goal of the year but it was waived off as Makarov was interfered with as the shot came to him and so it was waived off. 1-0 after the first 20, Pats were outshot 16-5 in the period.

In the second period the game went a little back and forth to start but the Blades would draw even 3:39 in. Josh Nicholls took a drop pass at the point from McColgan and with a nice toe drag got to the net and beat Hewitt 5 hole and it was 1-1. The Blades made it 2-0 at the 13:54 mark as Nicholls took a cross crease pass and fired off the glove of a diving Matt Hewitt and in and it was 2-1. The Pats had a full man advantage and an abbreviated one in the period but couldn't beat Makarov. The Blades had two man advantages of their own but didn't score either. It was 2-1 Blades after 2 and they led the shots on goal 27-13.

In the third period the Pats would battle looking to tie the game at 2. They generated some good scoring chances and Makarov made some good saves early on. The Pats would get the tieing marker at the 12:10 mark 4 on 4 as Colton Jobke walked into the slot, faked the shot and passed back door for Lane Scheidl who got is second of the night and 8th on the season. Morgan Kimchuk got the second assist and it was 2-2. However shortly after that Colten Mayor with a nice move for the Pats going to the net and got past the defenseman but couldn't quite avoid goaltender Andrey Makarov and he was called for interference. A tough call when it looked like he was helped into the netminder and tried his best to get out of the way but nonetheless the Pats went to the 4 on 3 penalty kill. 53 seconds after the tieing goal Shane McColgan tried a pass into he crease and it his a stick in front and go behind Mat Hewitt at the 13:03 mark and it was 3-2 Saskatoon. Darren Dietz and Matthew Pufahl got the assists on McColgans third of the year. The Pats would push hard after that in the final 5 minutes but Makarov made some big saves on Sylvegard and Scheidl to keep his tam in the lead and the game finished 3-2. The Blades outshot the Pats 35-26 in the game.

The Pats went 1 for 5 on the powerplay and killed 4 of 5 Blade man advantages. The three stars in the game were Saskatoon's Shane McColgan (3rd), Regina's Lane Scheidl (2nd) and Saskatoons Josh Nicholls (1st). Morgan Klimchuk had two assists in the game and has 4 points in his last the games while Lane Scheidl scored twice in the loss. Another tough one to swallow for the Blue and White who came up jut short on home ice and fall to 6-10-1-0 on the season.

Next action is Friday night at the Brandt Centre on pink ice for the Breast Cancer awareness night. The Calgary Hitmen are in town for the 7 o'clock puck drop on 620 CKRM.

Puck Drop: 7:00 p.m.

                                   Regina Pats (6-9-1-0)       Saskatoon Blades (5-9-0-0)

Head-to-Head
The Pats and Blades clash for the first time since splitting a pair of Pre-Season games.  The Pats went 3-5-0-0 against the Blades last season.  Jordan Weal led the way for the Pats last season with 10 points against Saskatoon while Matej Stransky had 10 of his own for the Blades against Regina.  The Pats play their first game at home after a four game road swing that saw the team go 1-3-0-0.  Saskatoon comes in having dropped three of its last seven.  Tonight’s game can be heard on 620 CKRM starting with the Press Box Sports Bar Pre-Game Show at 6:35 p.m.

Lead Up: Tigers Top Pats
The Pats wrapped up their road swing against the Tigers in Medicine Hat.  The teams traded goals, but two unanswered goals from Dylan Bredo and Trevor Cox gave the Tigers the lift they needed to pick up the win.  The Pats managed to get one goal back, but with only one second remaining on the clock.  Morgan Klimchuk scored twice for the Pats in the loss.

Pre-Season Battles
The Blades won the first half of the home and home in the Brandt Centre 2-1.  The Pats came back the next night and were victorious 4-3, scoring three unanswered goals in the third period before Saskatoon pulled back within one.


Powerplay Boost
With a pair of powerplay goals Saturday against the Tigers, the Pats jumped the powerplay five spots in the league rankings to fourteenth in the league (18.7%).  Morgan Klimchuk leads the Pats with four powerplay goals with Dyson Stevenson right on his heels tallying three with the man advantage.

Facing the Home Town Team
The Pats feature two Saskatoon products in Lane Scheidl and Chandler Stephenson.  Scheidl had four points (1G,3A) last season against the Blades while Stephenson had three (1G, 2A).

Who to Watch on Saskatoon
We’ll focus on the blue line as there’s plenty of talent on the Memorial Cup Host’s back end.  11th overall pick Duncan Siemens (COL), Darren Dietz (MTL), Dalton Thrower (MTL) make the Saskatoon D-zone a tough place to play.

Quick Hits
- Morgan Klimchuk’s pair of goals Saturday pushed him into the team lead with eight

Pats Remain Positive Despite Injuries


The Regina Pats are dealing with some injuries to key players early on in the season but its not keeping them down. Chandler Stephenson is out 6 to 8 weeks with a lower body injury while Trent Ouellette suffered aninjury as well in Lethbridge last week Friday and didnt play in Saturdays game against Medicine Hat. Stephenson was really starting to get things going before he was injured with 8 points in his last 7 games. Trent Ouellette on the other hand has already matched his point output from last year with 14 points in 15 games played this season. Not to mention the other injuries to second year winger Dryden Hunt as well as newcomer Patrick D'Amico who has yet to see a game this year.

However the coaching staff remain positive saying that there are no excuses for losing in this league. Head Coach Pat Conacher had this to say at today's practice.

"Doesn't matter, it just doesn't matter. I'm a firm believer of this in junior hockey. Its junior hockey and we have people here who need to step up and when I say step up I don't expect extraordinary things from anyone but when that happens like any team it falls back on your systems and on your structure. Everyone has to take a bigger ownership of the whole thing in that I have to be better in these areas as far as ownership of the puck, where I put it, my positioning etc. to cut down on those chances. Anybody can do that if they want to buy in and take ownership of that no matter what players you have. But I will say that its really tough when the other team and their skill out works you because skill with work wins everytime. But you know what, you still have to make that skill work and so at the end of the day we have to go out there with the same determination and make them out work us and be a better team that way, so I'm not going to fall back on that."

Team captain Colton Jobke was asked about the injuries and their impact on the teams recent slide.

"Obviously losing guys like Chandler and Trent is never good but it gives our younger guys an opportunity to step up and show what they can do out there. Obviously its been a bit of a slow start for us, not the start we were looking for but were looking to get back on track here at home."

The Pats are 6-9-1-1 on the season with 7 of their 9 losses coming on the road. The Brandt Centre has been good to the Blue and White who are 4-2-1 on home ice. The Saskatoon Blades visit Regina Tuesday night at 7 o'clock, broadcast on 620 CKRM.

Hilltops Win Jostens Cup

SASKATOON HILLTOPS 51
LONDON BEEFEATERS 7 SUNDAY OCTOBER 28 GORDIE HOWE BOWL

The clubs met for the first time on a frigid afternoon with a game time temperature of -4, but throw a nasty crosswind in and the windchill made it -14.

The Ontario champions had the ball to start, but 2 plays into the possession, Kyle Woldenburg-Puyda would fumble as Dylan Kemp forced the fumble & Brett Pisio pounced on the ball at the Beefs 44. As has been the case in the playoffs, when the Hilltops force a turnover, they cashed in as 1 play after a 35-yard run by Andre Lalonde; Tom Shockey barged in from a yard out to put the PFC champions up by a 7-0 count nearly 3 minutes into the game.

The Hilltops doubled their lead as they took the ball on an 8-play, 69-yard drive as Kyle McGinnis hauled in a 9-yard touchdown catch as Matt Karpinka got hammered by Jake Stiviletti just as he threw with 1:22 left in the period. Karpinka completed 11 of 20 for 152 yards and passed for a pair of touchdowns.

Eric Richards of London would intercept a Karpinka pass near the end of the quarter, but Beefs pivot Rob Lyons who struggled mightily all afternoon, completing just 5 of 16 for 32 yards, would be intercepted by Chris Friesen as he would go 30 yards for the touchdown which upped the Hilltop lead to 21-0.

It steadily went downhill for the Beefs as turnovers would cost them all day long. Taylor Rehn picked off a Lyons pass and scooted down to the London 22. From there, it took just 1 play for Saskatoon to capitalize as quarterback Jared Andreychuk ran a quarterback draw 22 yards for the touchdown that made it 28-0 Saskatoon just 2:40 into the second quarter. Donovan Dale forced a fumble on the ensuing London kickoff and Derek Sorenson would grab the ball.
Jared Andreychuk, who split time with Karpinka throughout the game, threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Lane Bannerman and at the 4:41 mark of the quarter; the Hilltops were in cruise control with a 35-0 lead with not even 20 minutes of playing time gone by.

A disastrous 2nd frame for the Ontario champions concluded as Andreychuk who only completed 4 passes found Chad Braun for a 16-yard score which completed a 3-play, 44-yard drive to make it 42-0 at halftime. The Saskatoon defense continued their smothering ways, holding London to only 48 yards of net offense in the half, while the Saskatoon offense racked up 280.

Zach Schmidt would be wide on a field goal try with the Beefs conceding a single to make it 43-0 4 minutes into the third. A quarterback switch for London would pay off late in the third quarter as Chuck Wall fired a 37-yard strike to Riley McMurray on a perfect fake field goal try, but that would be the lone bright spot offensively for London on the day. Wall completed 7 of 10 passes for 111 yards.

A second Schmidt field goal miss made it 44-7, then backup receiver Coleman Young took a Karpinka pass and travelled 36 yards for the touchdown that wrapped up the scoring with under 2 minutes to go and sends Saskatoon to Langley for a shot at their 3rd straight national title on November 10 as they play the BCFC champion Rams who ended the 6-year championship run of the Vancouver Island Raiders on Saturday afternoon as the Rams edged the Raiders 20-13 in the Cullen Cup Final.

Tigers 5 Pats 4



The Regina Pats were in Medicine Hat Saturday night to wrap up their 4 game road trip. The Blue and White had a 1 and 2 record in the first three coming in including a 6-1 loss in Lethbridge Friday night. The injurie bug bit the Pats again in that game as co-leading scored Trent Ouellette (Lane Scheidl) suffered a lower body injury and did not dress Saturday night. The Pats gave Matt Hewit the start in goal coming off replacing Teagan Sached against the Canes where he made 33 of 35 saves thorugh two periods. Emil Sylvegard, Colton Mayor and Lane Scheidl combined for the lone goal against Lethbridge and were looking to continue their steller offensive production in Medicine Hat. The Tigers on the other hand were big winner Friday hammering the Hitmen in Calgary 10-1. Curtix Valk and Hunter Shinkaruk both had 6 points for Medinice Hat in the win. Goaltender Cam Lanigan came in with the best save percentage and goals against average in the WHL. Both teams had identical records coming into the game at 6-8-1-0 and were tied for 9th in the Eastern Conference.

In the first period the Pats got the start they wanted and scored the games first goal 1:20 in. Luke Fenske kept a puck in at the point and took a shot at the net, it was tipped in front by Dyson Stevenson and got past Cam Lanigan. 1-0 Pats at that point. The Blue and White got to doing the little things well. Chipign pucks deep and making smart plays. The Tigers would get a powerplay chance in the period but the Pats did a rally good job at their own blue line not giving the Tigers any room and killed the entire man advantage. The Pats then got a powerplay chance of their own and while they did generate some zone time and some shots, Cam Lanigan had the answer. Then Hunter Shinkaruk on a beautiful play tied the gme at 1's. he took a pass beind the Pat net and skated owards the slot. Just when it looked like he had no chance at a shot he spun and backhanded top corner at 17:50 and it was 1-1. Busenius and Valk got the assists. Thats how the period ended, the shots on goal were 8-8 in the opening frame.

In the second the Tigers came out and really got their cycle game going. They had some serious zone time in the fram and it led to a powerpls goal. Dylan Busenius took a pass at the point from Hunter Shinkaruk and fired through a screen and beat Matt Hewit at 5:11 to make it 2-1. Elgin Pearce got the second assist for the Tigers. Medincine Hat continued to press in the period but the Pats were able to keep the off the board thanks to Hewitt and not iving up a whole lot of quality chances. Th Blue and White woud get the goal back on a beautiful shot from Morgan Klimchuk in the slot as he fired top corner, off the post and in and it was 2-2. Kade Pilton and Dyson Stevenson got the assists at 11:19 and it was 2-2. Colten Mayor also had two really good chances to score in the period but one hit the post ad another he couldnt quite get teh shot away. Adam Brooks also had a good oportunity at teh side of the net but Lanigan made the save. The period ended tied at 2's with the shots on goal 26-15 in favour of the Tigers.

In the third the Tigers would take the lead on the powerplay 59 seconds in as Hunter Shinkaruk was all alone at the side of the goal an finished a pass from Curtis Valk and it was 3-2. However 54 seconds later the Lats would tie it again with a powerplay of their own. Morgan Klimchuk fired it home from the slot at 1:53 and it was 3-3. Colton Jobke and Colby Williams got the assists. The Tigers would re take the lead at the 4:38 mark as Bredo scored his 3rd of the year from Doty and Lewington and it was 4-4. It went back and forth after that and the Pats had their chances but didn't score. The Tigers made it 5-3 with 2:30 left as Trevor Cox took a pass into the slot from Elgin Pearce and scored. Shinkaruk got the second assist. The Pats pulled the goaltender with less than two to play looking for 2 goals. They would get one with 1 second left from Colton Jobke on a shot from the point. Colby Williams and Morgan Klimchuk got the assists but the game finished 5-4. Shots on goal were 34-25 Medicine Hat in the game.

Hurricanes 6 Pats 1

The Pats were in Lethbridge Friday after beeting the Kootenay Ice 3-0 on Wednesday. Teagan Sacher who got the shut out in that game got the start again against the Hurricanes. The Pats had some roster changes as Braden Christoffer and Tye Hand got in and Henry Hardarson and Bryar Ortynski were scratched. Emil Sylvegard came in riding a three game point streak with a goal and two assists over that stretch. The Canes and Pats came in with the same record of 6-7-1-0 and were tied for 8th in the Eastern Conference.

The first period started and the Hurricanes got off on the right foot. Tey scored 2:59 into the game as Jamal Watson fired high and beat Sacher. Duke had the line assist. The Canes would go to the powerplay 4 minutes later and Russell Maxwell made it 2-0 on therm advantage at 7:53. 31 seconds later Jay Merkley took a cross crease pass from Leverton and made it 3-0 at 8:24. The Pats then called a timeout and it seemed to work as Emil Sylvegard led a 2 on 1 rush and fed Colten Mayor who made a nice move to beat Ty Rimmer for his 5th at 8:40 and it was 3-1. Lane Scheidl got the second assist. However the Canes would get it back at the 12:05 mark as Sam Mckechnie finished off the toe of Sacher from Ramsay and Hood am it was 4-1. That's how the period ended. The Hurricanes out shot the Pats 20-4 in the frame.

To start the second a goaltending change for the Blue and White as Matt Hewitt replaced Teagan Sacher as the coaches were looking for a spark. Early in the period the Pats had a glorious chance to score as Dyson Stevenson had a wide open net on a back door pass but he missed and its stayed 4-1. Then at the 4:26 mark Jamal Watson made it 5-1 on his second of the night as the puck bounced over the he's of Matt Hewitt and landed on. His stick. Yakubowski and Bloomqvist with the assists. After that things tightened up a bit but the Hurricanes still had their chances. Matt Hewitt made three highlight reel saves to keep the score respectable heading to the third. Lethbridge out shot the Pats 44-13 through two periods.

In the third the Pats didn't get much going offensively. The lone goal I the period was scored by Lethbridge defenseman Ryan Pilon on a shot from the point that hit the stick of Colton Jobke and over the head of Matt Hewitt and in the net. 6-1 the score at that point and that was how it finished. Shots on goal were 55-29 in favour of Lethbridge in the game.

Matt Hewitt made 33 of 35 saves in two periods of work and Emil Sylvegard extended his point streak to four games with an assist. Colten Mayor got the lone goal of the game and is now in a three game point streak of his own.
