The Pats acquired Carter Ashton on December 9th, 2009 from the Lethbridge Hurricanes in a deal that also saw Craig Orfino and a 3rd round 2010 pick come to the Pats in exchange for Graham Hood, Talor Balog a 2nd 2010 Bantam pick and a 1st round pick in 2011.

“These are always difficult moves to make,” Explains Regina Pats General Manager, Chad Lang. “Carter has been a big part of our hockey club for this past year, so it’s very difficult to see him move on but we felt it was important for our organization moving forward to make the deal.”

Lang continues, “We are excited to receive not only the draft picks but two young players. Moser is a solid two way forward who we feel has the potential, over time, to be a top six forward. As a bantam he was selected in the 2nd rd so it shows he is one of the top prospects in his age class. In Olstad, we are getting a hardworking, energy type forward that gives us even more depth in our line-up. We would like to welcome both players joining our organization and are excited to see them in the line-up.”

“I would like to thank Carter Ashton for his commitment and dedication to our organization and wish him all the best at the upcoming World Junior Selection Camp.”

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...
