Parker Steps Aside

After spending the past eighteen years in the capacity of General Manager and/or President of the Regina Pats, Brent Parker announced today he is resigning from the team and will leave the organization at the end of the month.  Parker was originally named as the club’s General Manager in the summer of 1995 shortly after the Regina Pats franchise was purchased by the Parker family from Ted Knight, Bill Hicke and Morley Gusway.
“I am honored and humbled to have been a part of this storied franchise,” commented Brent Parker. “While we did not achieve all our goals over the past 18 years, we have done a lot of good things in this community and I am proud of our many accomplishments.”
This is the third time Parker has made a major announcement in the month of May.  In 2008 it was revealed Brent had been diagnosed with Fibro Sarcoma Cancer and in 2010 he handed over the General Manager’s reins to Chad Lang while Parker remained with the team in the role of team President and Governor.
Lang is now the team's senior-vice president and governor.

Thank you Mr. Brent Parker for your Regina hockey commitments and dedicated service.

Brent had a great marketing acumen, but his hockey skills weren't so great. There is no denying the passion he brought to the team though.

Many have stated they weren't going back until Parker left. He has. Are you going to hold up your end of the bargain now? If you are, season ticket sales should soar. Sadly, we all know that everyone who said that is a gutless coward who hides under the name anonymous or just leaves the comment unsigned.
