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 something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
