Regina, Saskatchewan – The Regina Pats Hockey Club announced this afternoon that the 4th Trans-Canada Clash between Regina Pats and Moose Jaw Warriors alumni has been cancelled due to the Warriors inability to field a team.
The event was to be played on Saturday, January 29th 2011 at 1:00pm at the Brandt Centre.
Regina Pats Vice-President of Operations Cliff Mapes, “we are disappointed that we were forced to cancel this year’s Trans Canada Clash alumni game but I am more disappointed for the fans that look forward to this game every year. I was confident that the team we had assembled this year would have put on a very good show for the fans and lead us to our 4th straight win. We are currently working with other WHL teams that are interested in pursuing a home in home Trans Canada clash style alumni weekend and we hope to make an announcement real soon.”
The Pats alumni have won all three of the previous Trans-Canada Clashes with the games being played in front of full-houses at both the Moose Jaw Civic Centre in 2008 and 2010 and the Brandt Centre in 2009.
