Regina, Saskatchewan – Regina Pats Senior VP and General Manager Chad Lang announced this morning Pats rookie Maximilian Kammerer (’96) will join Team Germany for their World U-20 Championship Camp in hopes of earning a spot on their World Junior Championship roster.
Kammerer was the Pats’ second round selection (76th Overall) in the 2013 CHL Import Draft. The Dusseldorf native has a goal and two assists in 21 games with the Blue and White this season.
Last spring, Kammerer was a member of Germany’s World U-18 Championship Team where he registered one assist in five games for his country. Continue reading
Regina, Saskatchewan – Regina Pats goaltender Nick Schneider got the start in goal against the Moose Jaw Warriors on Saturday evening. The Blue and White looked to bounce back from a 7-6 overtime loss against the Prince Albert Raiders the night before.
Before the opening faceoff, Dryden Hunt and Scott Cooke jousted, which set the stage for what would be a gritty battle.
Bryson Gore scored on the Warriors’ first shot of the game just under three minutes into the opening frame. Hunt responded with his six of the season at 5:53 from Boston Leier and Kyle Burroughs. Following Hunt’s goal, Burroughs sat a pair for interference. The Blue and White handily killed off the Warriors’ first man advantage. Continue reading
This article is a little overdue, but Mark’s dedication to volunteering is too admirable to go unnoticed:
Regina, Saskatchewan - Three is the magic number for Mark Stefan.
The dedicated volunteer has been involved with the Grey Cup every time the Queen City has hosted the big game. He was on the committee in 1995, and was the executive VP of it in 2003. This year, Stefan is the vice-chairman of the 101st Grey Cup Festival, and he is certain that 2013 is going to be a year to remember.
“Each year, we said this is the best Grey Cup ever. Without a doubt, this one is by far and away,” he said joyfully. Continue reading
Regina, Saskatchewan – On Friday night, the Regina Pats (14-12-0-0) played their first game at the Brandt Centre in almost four weeks. Their opponents were their division rivals, the Prince Albert Raiders (15-9-2-0).
The Blue and White received an early power play just over 30 seconds into the opening frame. Pats forward Dryden Hunt spotted Connor Gay in the slot, and Gay put home his fourth of the year at 2:14. Boston Leier got a little too aggressive on the forecheck and sat a pair for interference to give the Raiders their first man advantage of the game. Continue reading
Regina, Saskatchewan – Now less than a month until the 101st Grey Cup, the Saskatchewan Roughriders organization is in full preparation mode for the big game and pre-game festivities.
For Jim Hopson, president and CEO of the Riders, and co-chair of the Grey Cup organizing committee, this year is different from the previous championship games the Queen City hosted.
“In the past, our previous two Grey Cups in ’95 and ’03, we were kind of in the background to be quite honest,” says Hopson, who was on the Grey Cup board in 2003.
“The organization in those days was fairly small. We were struggling off and on the field, and we didn’t have a lot of resources to operate the team as it was. Then you bring in the Grey Cup and it was really a challenge for us.” Continue reading
Regina, Saskatchewan – The Regina Pats (8-8-0-0) and the Moose Jaw Warriors (6-9-1-2) squared off for the third time in the 2013-2014 regular season on Wednesday evening at the Brandt Centre. It was also Rider Pride Night presented by Mosaic, which meant that the Pats sported green and white jerseys in honor of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
Both teams enjoyed some four-on-four hockey at 4:20 of the first period. Just as the Pats and Warriors returned to even-strength, Pats defenseman Kyle Burroughs was given the gate for hooking. The Warriors had one shot on the goalless powerplay.
Midway through the first, Tye Hand and Josh Urich got the crowd energized with a lengthly scrap. Following the fight, the visitors took a pair of consecutive minors, and were successful in killing them off. Continue reading
