It was a quiet WHL Trade Deadline day for the Regina Pats, but the team announced a trade a few hours after the deadline that sent Robbie Holmes to Everett for a 15-year-old forward prospect and draft picks.
The team announced Holmes was traded to the Silvertips for Sloan Stanick, a 2020 second-round pick and a sixth-round pick in 2022.
Holmes spent his entire career with the Pats after getting drafted by the team in 2014. He has suited up for 148 games with the pats and tallied 56 points. He has scored 16 points in 24 games this season.
He also has a vast amount of playoff experience, suiting up for 35 post-season games with the organization.
“We wish Robbie all the best in Everett,” John Paddock, Pats general manager and vice-president of hockey operations, said in a news release. “He has been a great player on and off the ice here in Regina and been a big part of our success over the last four years.”
The Pats have been restocking the cupboards with youth and draft picks this season following their Memorial Cup run last season. They shipped out Jake Leschyshyn and Nick Henry to Lethbridge earlier in the year in one of their deals.
Stanick, a 15-year-old forward from Rapid City, Man., was selected by Everett in the seventh round of the 2018 WHL Bantam Draft. He has 12 goals and 12 assists in 31 games for the Manitoba Midget Hockey League’s Yellowhead Chiefs.
The Pats will be in action once again Friday night when they travel to meet the Medicine Hat Tigers.
