Goaltender Matt Hewitt perfect in Regina Pats 3-0 win over Prince Albert Raiders

REGINA - Matt Hewitt made 23 saves as the Regina Pats shut out the Prince Albert Raiders 3-0 on Thursday in Western Hockey League play.

Trent Ouellette, Adam Rossignol and Marc McCoy scored as Regina (12-18-4) ended a seven-game losing streak. Morgan Klimchuk and Lane Scheidl had two assists each.

Luke Siemens stopped 20 shots for Prince Albert (21-11-2).

McCoy scored in his first game with the Pats. He was traded to Regina from the Red Deer Rebels in a deal that also included the injured Filip Vasko.

Also new to the Pats lineup was Darian Henry, an 18-year-old picked up from the Calgary Hitmen.

The three were acquired Wednesday to help fill a roster depleted by injuries, illness and, in one case, defection. Kade Pilton, an 18-year-old defenceman, quit the team earlier this week.

Prince Albert had two power-play opportunities. Regina went 1 for 3 with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
