Keith Hershmiller Photography
Regina - Emil Oksanen scored his first career hattrick and added an assist to lead the Pats to a 6-1 win over the Red Deer Rebels on Sunday at the Brandt Centre.

Oksanen scored once in the first and added another in the second to give Regina the 2-0 lead. Red Deer responded on the powerplay and it was 2-1 heading to the third.

That’s when Regina took over starting with Oksanen’s hattrick goal, 4:27 into the period.

Bryce Platt, Josh Mahura and Dawson Davidson added goals after that to give Regina the 6-1 win.

Oksanen’s four points paced the offense while Sam Steel and Dawson Davidson chipped in with three points each and Tyler Brown made 21 saves. Regina outshot Red Deer 38-22, the powerplay was two for hour and the penalty kill six for seven.

This kid from Finland is incredibly talented. Will fit in real nice with the Pats Memorial Cup run.

The Man of Steele makes all the difference to the team's success.

Wow! Sure lots of interest on this team this year . The only reason is that they are getting big attendance is because the season ticket holders get first shot at the Memorial Cup tickets. Not to see the Patsies, to see some much better teams.

Yes, sure, they're there to watch 'better teams'.

The dumb townies with an irrational hate-boner for the Pats are all laughable people.

You spelled STEEL wrong. Duh!

Hey anon# 3 , your Patsie references are really getting old. We get that you don't like the Pats or their fans or anything associated with them but please just go away! Your act is getting very old and pathetic and only exposes your low intelligence! Get a life already!

I am a Pats season ticket holder and DID NOT buy my tickets because of the Memorial Cup. I bought them because I really enjoyed watching our team last year and am looking forward to watching more exciting games this year. The new player Oksansen is making watching the Pats very enjoyable so far. GO PATS GO!!

Have been a season ticket holder for a number of years and Regina has never hosted a memorial cup during that time so Anon's reasoning doesn't apply to me, or I assume a lot of others.
The Pats raised the bar last year and they were the talk of the town for amateur sports FINALLY!
The new ownership group came in with a plan to build a team and started with hiring of a great experienced Coach. He has not disappointed. I am confident he will continue to put the pieces together to put a Memorial Cup title contender in the Brandt Centre in May, but regardless will be a season ticket holder for many years to come.
