Regina, Saskatchewan – Regina Pats Senior VP and General Manager Chad Lang announced today goaltender Teagan Sacher is leaving the hockey club to pursue academic interests at the University of Winnipeg.
Sacher, a native of Winnipeg, MB, played in 26 games last season with the Pats posting an 8-13-2-0 record with a 3.87 GAA, 0.883 SV% and one shutout on the year. The 19-year old played in only two games this season due to injury.
Lang also announced the team claimed over-age goaltender Mac Engel off waivers from the Prince George Cougars.
In three previous seasons, Engel appeared in 135 games for the Spokane Chiefs and Prince George. The Red Deer, AB product holds a career record of 52-51-4-10 to go with a 2.91 GAA, a 0.894 SV% and 7 career shutouts.
The addition of Engel brings the Pats to the limit allowed by the CHL of three over-age players (Engel, Dyson Stevenson and Boston Leier).
