Pats 2012 Training Camp Day 1
Evening Summary

Session Summary:

Scrimmage One (Red 4 vs Grey 3)
The first scrimmage of the 2012 Regina Pats Training Camp featured the ’96-’97 born players in camp.  Team Grey jumped out to the early advantage, leading 3-1 heading into the third period.  Team Red battled back, though, and evened the score in the final minute of play.  The late equalizer set the stage for Ross Heidt to score the only goal of the shootout and pick up the win for Red.

Who Stood Out?
Adam Brooks ('96) had two points for team Red in the opening Red vs. Grey scrimmage to continue his momentum from a strong morning.

Team Grey’s Liam Finlay (’97) was out to show he can compete even with a 5'5", 130 lbs frame.  He scored once and was close twice more.  The shifty forward frustrated defenders slipping away from impending body checks with ease.

Scrimmage Two (Blue 4 vs White 3)
When the ’92-’95 born players stepped on the ice, it didn’t take long for the puck to find the back of the net.  Team Blue jumped out to an early 2-0 lead and fought off two Team White comebacks to hold on for the 4-3 victory.

Who Stood Out?
Like Adam Brooks, Emil Sylvegard (’93) continued to have a strong day.  He was buzzing around the net all game and picked up Team White’s first marker.  His creative passing opened up plenty of opportunities for teammates.

Cole Hamblin (’93) made his considerable presence felt in the Blue/White scrimmage.  Hamblin threw his 238 pounds around the rink like a wrecking crew.  He also helped out with a rocket of a goal put Blue up 3-2 in the second period.

Quotes from the Rink
Head Scout Dale McMullin on Finlay.  “I think Liam is a guy with a boatload of skill.  He thinks the game and has a fast set of hands.  He’s a kid who, over time, has to put on a little more weight and a few inches and I think he can play the game.” {Audio Attached}

Morgan Klimchuk on coming into his draft year.  “If you play within the systems here, and if you do that you’ll have your own success, your own personal success.  That’s all I’m trying to do is just make sure the team is doing what the team is doing what the team needs to do.  Then I can kind of worry about myself.” {Audio Attached}
