Pats Acquire Carter Hansen from Moose Jaw
Regina, Saskatchewan – Regina Pats Senior VP and General Manager Chad Lang announced the team completed a trade with the Moose Jaw Warriors today. Former First Round (10th Overall) WHL Bantam pick Carter Hansen (’95) comes to the Blue and White. Heading the other way in the deal is veteran forward Jack Rodewald (’94) along with a conditional pick in the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft.
Hansen totaled 16 points (7G, 9A) in 69 games in 2012-13, his sophomore season with the Warriors. The Craven, SK product has 122 WHL games to his name and holds 34 points in those contests. In the 2013 Pre-Season Hansen notched two assists in three games of action.
The 6’2”, 195 lbs forward was the captain for Team West at the World U-17 Hockey Challenge in 2012 where he picked up an assist in five games at the annual tournament.
Rodewald suited up for 126 contests in a Pats uniform after being drafted by the team in the eighth round of the 2009 WHL Bantam Draft. The Winnipeg, MB native put up 26 points (13G, 13A) in his time with the Pats and chipped in with two goals in the 2013 Pre-Season.
“We are excited to add Carter to our line-up,” stated Chad Lang. “We feel he fits with the age group we are building around with our hockey club. He’s a responsible player in all three zones and various game situations and we feel he can contribute to our success on the ice. We also want to thank Jack for his contributions to our team and community. We wish him all the best.”
