Bedard Watch: Pats star pots eighth hat trick of season in loss

Connor Bedard is showing no signs of slowing down as the WHL season hits the final stretch.

The Regina Pats star had three goals and two assists in a 9-5 loss against the visiting Moose Jaw Warriors on Friday night.

It was the eighth hat trick of the season for the 17-year-old WHL scoring leader, who now has 66 goals on the season.

He’ll have to wait at least another day to help the Pats clinch a playoff spot, though.

The Pats just need one point in their final four games to ensure a playoff trip.

The Warriors scored six straight goals after Bedard opened the scoring to take control of the game.

Bedard took a high hit from Robert Baco after scoring his second goal, causing a melee.

The consensus No. 1 pick in this year’s NHL Draft now has nine points in his past two games.

Seattle Kraken prospect Jagger Firkus had a hat trick for Moose Jaw.

BEDARD’S SEASON TOTALS: 53 GP, 66 G, 68 A, 134 Pts.

PATS’ RECORD: 32-28-4 (Sixth in the Eastern Conference)

UP NEXT: The Pats and Warriors wrap up a home-and-home series in Moose Jaw on Saturday at 9 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. MT.
