Edmonton, Alberta – With their 1st pick, 5th overall in the WHL Bantam Draft, the Regina Pats have selected forward, Morgan Klimchuk from Calgary, Alberta.

Klimchuk was the Captain of a Calgary Bison squad that won the silver medal at the Western Canadian Bantam Championships. In 28 games with the Bisons this season, Klimchuk scored 33 times and collected 19 assists for 52 points while adding 44 minutes in penalties. He was also a 2009-10 South Division AMBHL All-Star.

Regina Pats General Manager, Brent Parker, “We are very excited to have Morgan joining our organization, he is gifted goal scorer and as good a skater as there was in the draft. We believe that if he continues to develop he has a chance to be a very good offensive player in our league. He was the captain of the Calgary Bisons this past season as he helped lead them to the league and provincial championships. His family has ties to the city and I know he is thrilled to be a Pat”

Regina Pats Director of Scouting, Todd Ripplinger, “Played great at the Western Canadian Bantam Championships, he was dominant and showed great hands. He combines great feet, and is a good skater; Klimchuk will be a stud in this league.”

Other past Regina Pat 1st round selections include Chandler Stephenson (2009), Myles Bell (2008), Dominick Favreau (2007), Colten Teubert (2006) and Brett Leffler (2005).

The Pats will next pick in the 3rd round, 47th overall.

I don't think all of the Pats information is correct. There is no way he could have been born in '05. He would only be 5 years old :). I guess I'm just a tad bit picky today. Good pick for the Pats.

I've been trying to think about...

how to add more content to TheBlueliner but I'm not sure what I want to add here. I keep on saying to check back in the near future but I just never get back here. I have a couple of other things going on and I hope that I have more time to focus on things that I can put here. Seeing as Twitter is my main source I'll start embedding my tweets here. Earlier in the year, Rob Vanstone did a story on me for the Leader-Post which I'll share here: As far back as 41-year-old Kevin Shaw can remember, he has been fascinated with the @WHLPats — as evidenced by his extensive collection https://t.co/UD8JrxQSwG #WHL — Regina Leader-Post (@leaderpost) February 7, 2020 Some of my regular daily Tweets include Pats Alumni and their birthdays. I usually write a small biography on each player that had birthdays. July 11th's @WHLPats alumni birthdays...
