Team to take on Thunderbirds at home on Friday
Regina Pats players and coaches are preparing to host the Seattle Thunderbirds in Games 1 and 2 of the Western Hockey League’s Championship series on Friday and Saturday nights.
If you don’t include the year they hosted the Memorial Cup in 2001, it’s been over three decades since the Regina Pats were playing in May.
Fans are also pumped for the series, with both games selling out in mere minutes on Monday.
