The Pats closed out the unofficial second half of the WHL season with a weekday split. Tuesday saw the Blue and White show plenty of resilience as they battled back from 2-0, 3-1, 4-2 and 5-3 deficits to beat the Wheat Kings in Brandon by a 6-5 score in overtime. Connor Gay scored the game winner in the extra frame while Patrick D’Amico scored the tying goal when Chase Harrison’s shot went in off D’Amico’s skate.
The following night saw the tables turned on the Pats when they jumped out to a 2-0 lead and held the lead two more times including in the final two minutes, but fell to the Lethbridge Hurricanes 5-4 in overtime. Nick Walters scored the winning goal for Lethbridge.
The Week Ahead

Dryden Hunt leads the Pats with 36 points (12G, 24A) while the Pats feature nine players over 20 points so far. Rookie Sam Steel leads all 16-year olds with 30 points in 30 games and is second in overall rookie scoring while Sergey Zborovskiy is 7th among rookie defencemen.
