The WHL trade deadline has passed and the Regina Pats were one of the busier teams when all was said and done.
In all the Pats made three different deals with three different teams. The most notable of the moves saw the team move 16-year-old goaltender Nick Schneider and a third round draft pick in 2016 to the Medicine Hat Tigers for 18-year-old goalie Daniel Wapple and 19-year-old centre Logan McVeigh.
Needless to say the end of the year was an eventful one for one former Rider.

Of course the team is pretty excited to have Maze back on board as well.
