Regina, Saskatchewan – Regina Pats General Manager, Chad Lang announced this morning that the Regina Pats have traded 19 year old forward, Campbell Elynuik to the Prince George Cougars in exchange for a conditional 6th round WHL Bantam Draft pick in 2012.
Elynuik played in 8 games as a member of the Regina Pats in 2011-12, registering a goal and two assists as well as picking up 24 minutes in penalties.
Regina Pats General Manager Chad Lang stated, “With the youngsters flourishing and the acquisition of Matt Marantz, Campbell became a victim of a numbers game. He will get a great opportunity in Prince George and I would like to thank him for his time with the Pats and wish him the best the rest of this season.”
The Pats now have 14 forwards, 8 defencemen and 2 goaltenders currently on the roster as they prepare for Thursday night’s battle against the Calgary Hitmen on “Rivalry Night”. It’s a 7:00pm puck drop at the Brandt Centre, but get there early because Bret “The Hitman” Hart will be there to sign autographs beginning at 6:00pm.
