Nelson's Dryden Hunt missed Game One

Nelson’s Hunt get first taste of WHL post season

Regina Pats not up to the task and fall 8-1 in Game Two on Saturday night

Nelson’s Dryden Hunt played in his first Western Hockey League playoff game on Saturday night in Moose Jaw, but it wasn’t a game to remember for the major junior rookie and his Regina Pats teammates.

In Game Two of the WHL’s Eastern Conference first round series between the Pats and the Moose Jaw Warriors, Regina were crushed 8-1. The series is now tied 1-1 and heads back to Regina for Game Three on Tuesday night.

Saturday’s game stayed pretty even after the first period of play with Moose Jaw outshooting the Pats 12-4 but only managing one goal. The Warriors — who finished second in regular season in the East compared to the Pats seventh place finish — then took over in the second period. The home side fired 16 shots on the Pats’ net scoring three times and increasing the lead to 4-0. Four more goals in the third period made the final 8-1.

Hunt — a graduate of Nelson Minor Hockey and the Major Midget Ice — is a 16-year-old rookie in the WHL.
