Pats Swing Deal with Silvertips

Regina, Saskatchewan – The Regina Pats have acquired defenceman Tye Hand (’95) from the Everett Silvertips in return for a sixth round pick in the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft.

A second round pick (40th) overall in the 2010 Bantam Draft, Hand spent last season with the Drumheller Dragons in the AJHL.  There he suited up for 25 games tallying one assist on his way to being named to the AJHL’s South Division All-Rookie Team.

Pats GM Chad Lang on acquiring Hand, “Tye is a big, physical, stay-at-home defenceman.  That rugged presence will add a lot to our back end as well as depth to our 1995 age group at defence.”

The Yellowknife, NWT product represented his home territory at the 2011 Canada Winter Games and certainly brings size to the Pats D-corp, measuring in at 6’3”, 190 lbs.

While Hand makes his way to join the Pats, his new teammates will be on the ice tonight in Saskatoon, taking on the Blades.  You can catch all of the action on CKRM with Phil Andrews and Daniel Fink starting with the Pre-Game Show at 6:35 this evening.


Name:              Tye Hand
DOB:              06-14-95
Hometown:     Yellowknife, NWT
Position:          D
Height:            6’3”
Weight:           190 lbs

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...
