Pats Clean-Up At WHL Awards

The Regina Pats will be flying home from Calgary with a lot more baggage than what they went with after attending the WHL Awards Luncheon.

Forward Sam Steel has been awarded the "Four Broncos Memorial Trophy" as the WHL player of the year. Steel, who also won the Bob Clarke Trophy as the league's top scorer, had 131 points this season.

The first round pick of the Anaheim Ducks will lead the Pats into the WHL final against Seattle starting Friday.

Pats head coach and general manager John Paddock was named the league's top coach and league's top executive. 

The team was also given the league's marketing award. 

Connor Hobbs was up for the league's best defenceman, but Ethan Bear of the Seattle Thunderbirds, a member of the Ochapowace First Nation, was given the honour.

Congrats to Sam, but he needs to elevate his game against Seattle.

I hope Marquart and Co are doing everything to ensure Paddock stays where he is. You can't tell me NHL offers aren't coming his way.

I'm $ure the owner$ are doing everything they can to keep John Paddock in Regina. I'm $ure it's all within league rule$ too. I'm sure they will find a way to bol$ter the ro$ter and get Ty$on Jo$t in Regina too.
