Mitchell a Capital
Montreal, Quebec – The Regina Pats are proud to have forward Garrett Mitchell selected in the 6th round, 175th overall in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Washington Capitals.
Mitchell, a Regina native, completed his 2nd season with the blue and white, collecting 10 goals and 5 assist for 15 points, while amassing 140 penalty minutes. He has also had success away from the Pats. Mitchell was a member of Canada’s U-18 team that won gold in last summer’s Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament, and was also a part of the U-18 club that placed 4th at this past spring’s World Championships in Fargo, North Dakota.
Regina Pat players have had a great history at the NHL Entry Draft. Since 1994, a member of the blue and white has been selected every year except for one, 2004. During that span a total of 34 players have had their dreams come true by getting selected by an NHL club.
