The Regina Pats made their second trade of the day with a Central Division team, sending 19-year-old forward Scott Mahovlich to the Lethbridge Hurricanes.

In return, the Pats have acquired a third-round selection in the 2019 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft while sending an eighth-round selection in the same draft to the Hurricanes in the deal as well.

“We wish Scott all the best in Lethbridge,” said Pats VP of Hockey Operations and GM John Paddock. “He has been a credit to our organization on and off the ice.”

Mahovlich, a product of Abbotsford, B.C., began his WHL career with the Kamloops Blazers on September 23, 2016. After 62 games with the Blazers, Mahovlich was dealt to the Pats last season, appearing in all five games for Regina at the 2018 Memorial Cup.

Overall, the 6-foot-2, 186-pound forward has appeared in 130 WHL regular season games, posting 18 points (6G-12A), including one power-play goal and one short-handed goal. Mahovlich has also appeared in 10 WHL playoff games.

The Hurricanes are in action Friday, January 4 (7:00 p.m. MT) at home against the Vancouver Giants.
