Observations

February 2019 – The Regina Pats decided to move their top two offensive players at the WHL trade deadline. Linemates Jake Leschyshyn and Nick Henry moved on to the Lethbridge Hurricanes in an effort to bolster their playoff chances. Since moving to the Hurricanes, Leschyshyn has posted a point-per-game while seeing fewer overall minutes. His 32 points, including 17 goals, in 32 games has helped to showcase the pivot’s two-way game and knack for finding the back of the net.  There is a very tight race going on in the Central Division, and Lethbridge’s depth may provide them with enough firepower to advance to the late stages of the WHL’s playoffs in another month. Mason Black

November 2018 – The last pick in the second round of the 2017 NHL entry draft has been a nice surprise after a somewhat disappointing season in 2017-18. Leschyshyn has found the score sheet consistently and currently sits 15th in WHL scoring with 15 goals and 15 assists in only 22 games played. He’s been playing with Colorado prospect Nick Henry, which has been the one bright spot in an otherwise unsatisfactory start for the Regina Pats; a team that lost most of their star players after loading up for the Memorial Cup last year. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Leschyshyn moved to a contender at some point this season to add depth at the centre position. Mason Black
