The Regina Pats have acquired 20-year-old defenceman Zach Wytinck from the Brandon Wheat Kings. In exchange, the Wheat Kings will receive a fifth-round selection in the 2022 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft.

Originally listed by the Red Deer Rebels, Wytinck has three points (1G-2A) in seven games this season. In the 2018-19 campaign, the Glenboro, Man. product recorded 43 points (5G-38A) in 65 games. Overall, the 6-foot, 170-pound blueliner has earned 71 points (10G-61A) in 180 career regular season and playoff games.

“We would like to thank Zach for his many contributions on and off the ice,” Darren Ritchie, Brandon’s general manager said. “He has been a great ambassador for the Wheat Kings’ organization since he arrived three years ago.”

“We are glad to add Zach to our backend,” John Paddock, Pats’ VP of Hockey Operations and General Manager said. “He is a steady presence on the blueline with some good offensive ability.”

The Pats are back in action on Saturday, October 12 (7 p.m. MT) when they host the Vancouver Giants at the Brandt Centre in Regina, Sask.
