Regina, Moose Jaw and the Tri-City Americans were given the green light on Saturday, when the WHL also announced that the Vancouver Giants team had been suspended.

Stoppages have occurred when multiple players and/or staff were added to the WHL’s COVID-19 protocol list. The list consists of people who have shown symptoms or tested positive for the coronavirus, which is increasing due to the Omicron variant.

The WHL announced on Friday that team operations were halted for 15 of its 22 teams.

The Pats were scheduled to face the Saskatoon Blades in a home-and-away game this weekend, but those games were rescheduled earlier this week. Saskatoon has not yet been cleared to resume team activities.

Regina’s Tuesday home game against the Calgary Hitmen has also been postponed. Calgary was among 15 teams named by the league in its Friday press release.

The next games on the Pats schedule are road games against the Winnipeg Ice on January 15-16. Winnipeg team activities remain on hiatus.
