Pats Add Travelling Scout
2010-08-20

Regina, Saskatchewan – Regina Pats General Manager, Chad Lang is proud to announce the creation and filling of a new position to Head Scout, Todd Ripplinger’s scouting staff. The new position of “Travelling Scout” will be filled by long time WHL insider, Russ Kutzak.

Russ has been involved in Western Hockey League scouting over the past 11 years with both the Moose Jaw Warriors and Saskatoon Blades.

With the Warriors, he helped build them into a WHL Eastern Conference Champion by identifying and helping draft the likes of: Dustin Boyd, Troy Brouwer, Tyler Johnson, Ashton Rome and Kyle Brodziak. Over the past 5 seasons with the Saskatoon Blades scouting staff, Russ helped bring in: Josh Nicholls, Duncan Siemens, Dalton Thrower and Charles Inglis.

“It was a very tough decision to leave the Blades organization, but I look forward to joining a good team, a team with great ownership, management, coaches and scouting staff,” says Pats Travelling Scout, Russ Kutzak, “I look forward to a new position and a new challenge.”

“I am extremely excited to have Russ join our organization. I had the great fortune to work with him in Moose Jaw. He as a great eye for identify and evaluation prospects and will be a welcome addition to our scouting staff. Russ is well respected in the hockey community,” says Regina Pats General Manager, Chad Lang, “His individual character, work ethic and experience, makes him a perfect fit for our organization and will play a big part in helping identify future prospects to ensure we build a strong foundation for year to come. On behalf of the entire organization I would like to welcome Russ along with his wife Donna to the Pats organization.”

Russ will join the club immediately and will be in Regina in time for the beginning of training camp next Saturday at the Co-Operators Centre.

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...
