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

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
