Pats add to blue line with addition of Feist from Chiefs
Defenceman Tyson Feist is headed north of the border following a Thursday deal between the Spokane Chiefs and Regina Pats.
“Tyson has waived his no trade clause as he is looking for more ice time,” said Chiefs general manager Scott Carter. “We wish him the best in Regina.”
The Pats acquired the 17-year-old product of Dawson Creek, B.C. and a 10th-round selection in the 2019 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft in exchange for a fifth-round selection in the 2021 WHL Bantam Draft and an eighth-round pick in the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft.
The 2019 eighth-round selection acquired by the Chiefs originally belonged to the Edmonton Oil Kings.
“We would like to welcome Tyson to Regina,” said Pats VP of Hockey Operations and GM John Paddock. “He is a big body defenceman and a right-handed shot which will be a good addition to our group.”
The 6-foot-3, 177-pound Feist made his WHL debut with the Chiefs on September 23, 2017. Since then, he’s appeared in 33 WHL regular season games, posting five assists.
Feist played 27 games with the Spokane Braves of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League last season, posting 17 points (2G-15A).
The Pats return to action Friday, January 4 (7:00 p.m. CT) as they head north to take on the Saskatoon Blades.
