Regina, Saskatchewan – Regina Pats Senior VP and General Manager Chad Lang announced today the team has acquired 18-year old defenceman Isaac Schacher (6’4”, 215 lbs) from the Victoria Royals in return for 5th Round WHL Bantam Draft Selections in 2015 and 2016.
Schacher (pronounced SHOCK-err) played in 35 games for Victoria this season while registering seven points (1G, 7A), 23 penalty minutes and a plus 13 rating. Last season, the Kimberly, B.C. native split time between the Royals (10 GP – 1A) and the KIJHL’s Kimberly Dynamiters (46 GP – 15G – 24A – 39PTS).
"We are happy to add a player of Isaac’s stature to our lineup. Schacher will provide depth and add size to our back-end,” said Chad Lang. “With the departure of Tye Hand, we felt it was important to add a big defender to our roster.”
