WHL Roundup: Swift Current Broncos dump Regina Pats 7-2 as regular season begins

REGINA - The Swift Current Broncos' well-rounded defence started the Western Hockey League season off with a bang.

Coda Gordon and Julius Honka had a goal and two assists each as Swift Current crushed the Regina Pats 7-2 in the season opener for both teams.

Brycen Martin and Connor Sanvido had power-play goals for the Broncos (1-0-0), while Dillon Heatherington, Zac Mackay and Tanner LeSann also scored.

Geordie Maguire scored both of Regina's (0-1-0) goals.

Landon Bow made 25 saves for the win. Dawson MacAuley played the first two periods for the Pats, stopping 13-of-18 shots. Teagan Sacher turned aside 4-of-6 shots in the third.

Both teams had discipline problems throughout the game. Swift Current had 39 minutes of penalties, while Regina racked up 31.

The Broncos went 2 for 4 on the power play and the Pats scored once on nine man advantages.

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
