Garrett Mitchell officially named Pats' Captain

Congratulations Garrett!

Press release:

Regina Pats are proud to announce 19 year old forward, Garrett Mitchell as captain of the 2010-11 Regina Pats.

A home-grown Regina boy, Mitchell has been with the Pats since being a 2nd round WHL Bantam Draft pick in 2006. In 194 games with the blue and white the past four seasons, Mitchell has collected 33 goals and 27 assists for 60 points while amassing 325 minutes in penalties.

Garrett was a 6th round pick, 175th overall of the Washington Capitals in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and played a game with the American Hockey League’s Hershey Bears last season.

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Garrett’s commitment, determination and his compete level. Through my discussions with Brent, the coaching staff and his teammates it was obvious how well respected he is,” commented Regina Pats General Manager, Chad Lang. “Garrett has all the qualities, characteristics and values we feel are needed to lead our organization.”

Regina Pats Head Coach, Curtis Hunt, “Garrett has epitomized the work ethic, desire, and passion that defines a Regina Pat. I know it is a proud day for him, as well as our organization-past, present and future.”

It’s a tremendous honour, growing up living in Regina seeing all the amazing captains that have worn a Pats jersey,” said Regina Pats Captain, Garrett Mitchell. “It’s amazing to follow the likes of former Pat greats like Jason Smith, Barret Jackman, Rick Rypien, Garth Murray just to name a few.”

Too see Garrett Mitchell and the rest of the Regina Pats, training camp 2010 kicks off this Saturday morning at 9am. All practice sessions are at the Co-Operators Centre and are free of charge.

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...
