PATS' STEEL NAMED DUB PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Steel registered seven points (4G-3A) in two games to help the Regina Pats go 2-0-0-0 this past week.
On Friday, September 30 against the Edmonton Oil Kings, Steel scored twice in his 2016-17 debut while earning second star honours in a 6-3 victory. The 18-year-old product of Sherwood Park, AB, concluded the weekend with a five-point effort (2G-3A), earning first star recognition in a 7-2 triumph over the Red Deer Rebels on Sunday, October 2.
With four goals to his name, Steel is currently tied for third in WHL goal scoring.
The 6-foot, 180-pound centre was returned to the Pats from the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks last week. A first round pick (30th) of the Ducks at the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, Steel is entering his third WHL campaign. He has collected 131 points (44G-87A) in 140 career WHL regular season contests.
The Regina Pats return to action Friday evening at 7:00 when they host the Kootenay Ice.
