Pats Add Depth Up Front
Acquire Forward from Broncos
Regina, Saskatchewan – Ahead of their Regular Season Opener in Brandon, the Regina Pats have completed a trade with the Swift Current Broncos, adding forward Adam Rossignol (’93) in return for a 12th round pick in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft.
The 6’0”, 180 lbs. forward comes to the Pats with WHL Championship experience having raised the Ed Chynoweth Cup in 2011 with the Kootenay Ice. Rossignol split last season between Kootenay and Swift Current, totaling 21 points in 71 games in 2011-12.
“Adam brings experience along with speed and skill to our lineup,” says GM Chad Lang of the 2008 7th round Bantam Draft pick. “Given the two significant injuries (Hunt and D’Amico) in our lineup, we felt we needed to add a player to create some depth up front and is why we made the move to acquire his rights.”
Rossignol could see his first action in a Pats uniform tonight when the Blue and White hit the road to face off with the Brandon Wheat Kings in the team’s Regular Season Opener broadcast on 620 CKRM starting at 6:05 MST.
The Pats return home tomorrow night for the Habitat for Humanity Home Opener presented by Mosaic. Tickets for the 7:00 game are still available through Ticketmaster.
