Friday's WHL Roundup @NHLdotcom

Linemates Jordan Eberle, Jordan Weal and Brett Leffler combined for six points on Friday night as the Regina Pats bucked the Swift Current Broncos 6-1 in Western Hockey League action.

Regina (3-4-0-0) had a 2-0 lead before the game was six minutes old thanks to power-play goals from Leffler and Matt Strueby. Killian Hutt, acquired Monday from the Portland Winterhawks, added another goal for Regina with a minute to go in the first to give the Pats a 3-0 lead after 20 minutes.
