Klimchuk, Scheidl lead the way as Pats down Thunderbirds 5-2 in WHL action

REGINA - Morgan Klimchuk and Lane Scheidl each had a goal and two assists Wednesday to help the Regina Pats beat the Seattle Thunderbirds 5-2 in the Western Hockecy League.

Regina (8-11-1) also had one goal each from Adam Rossignol, Colten Mayor and Luke Fenske, while Adam Brooks picked up two assists.

Shea Theodore and Justin Hickman replied for Seattle (8-9-1).

Matt Hewitt made 43 saves for the win, while Justin Myles stopped 17 shots in defeat.

Regina led 2-0 after the first thanks to Rossignol's fourth of the season and Mayor's seventh, a wicked wrist shot into the top corner.

Seattle erased the deficit five minutes into the second after back-to-back power-play goals. The first came off a booming slapshot from Theodore, before Hickman tucked a shot under the crossbar.

But Regina got the goals right back thanks to Fenske's second of the year followed by a power-play goal marker Scheidl, his ninth goal of the season.

Klimchuk then finished Seattle off midway through the third with his ninth of the season.

Seattle went 2-for-5 on the power play, while Regina went 1-for-3.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
