Pats Home Opener Tonight

Friday, September 23rd     Broncos @ Pats        Brandt Centre 7:00pm 
The season opener is the Habitat for Humanity “Hockey and Hammers” home opener for the Pats and it will be a great night beginning with the 620 CKRM season opening BBQ beginning at 5:30, outdoors on the Northeast side of the Brandt Centre. Get to the game early for the pregame ceremonies, video and light show. The Pats will welcome the return of Brandon Davidson, Ricard Blidstrand, Campbell Elynuik, Artem Bidlevskii and Jordan Weal back to the lineup after extended stays at NHL training camps.
Saturday, September 24th    Pats @ Broncos        Credit Union I-Plex 7:00pm
The Pats enjoyed some success against the Broncos last season, with a 7-1-0-0 record. Their lone loss came at the Swift Current I-Plex, which in the past has been a very difficult place to play for the Pats.

The faces of the Swift Current Broncos: 
LW – Adam Lowry 
The 18 year old 3rd round pick of the Winnipeg Jets this past spring is looking to step his play up to the next level. A season ago, Lowry had 45 points in 66 games with the Broncos.
D – Reece Scarlett 
The 18 year old 6th round pick of the New Jersey Devils was tops amongst Bronco defencemen a season ago in scoring with 24 points. He was just one of 2 Broncos to play all 72 regular season games in 2010-11.
D – Richard Nedomlel 
The big Czech defenceman had just 10 points a season ago, but showed that he was not someone to mess with, racking up 107 minutes in penalties. His rough and tumble play earned him a 6th round pick by the Detroit Red Wings.

Pats Stats:

Hopefully Weal has until December to improve on his all time scoring numbers. If they don't move him then we know who is really running this club.
