Pats Trade Underwood
The Regina Pats have completed a trade with the Red Deer Rebels, acquiring a 4th round pick in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft, sending 20-year old defenceman
Brandon Underwood to the Rebels.
The move brings the number of overage players on the Pats roster down to four including Matt Hewitt (G), Lane Scheidl (F), Andrew Reider (F) and Colton Jobke (D).
Underwood suited up for 54 games with the Pats last season as well as their first two games of the 2012-13 campaign. He totaled thirteen points in 2011-12 and featured a combined plus-8 plus/minus rating during his time in Regina.
“It’s always tough when you have to move a veteran player. Especially one who has been a tremendous teammate and leader within our locker room,” says General Manager Chad Lang. “Given our 20-year old situation we wanted to provide Brandon an opportunity to continue his career in the Western Hockey League.”
