The Rocky Mountain RoughRiders would like to congratulate Makai Mitchell for his placement on the Regina Pats "50 man protected list." The Regina Pats are in the Eastern Conference of the Western Hockey League (WHL) and are located in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The WHL is the top Major Junior Hockey League in Western Canada.
Makai has been a member of the Rocky Mountain RoughRiders for the past 4 seasons and has played on the 12U Tournament Team, 13U, 14U and most recently the 16U team.
"I'm really happy for Makai. Makai was challenged this year and he really embraced that challenge and is developing into a very dynamic offensive defenseman. I'm excited for Makai as he continues his development and the opportunities that will continue to come his way," said Coach Greg Vanover.
Congratulations to Makai and his family!
