The Regina Pats are a junior ice hockey team that plays in the Western Hockey League. The Pats are based out of Regina, Saskatchewan and the Brandt Centre is their home arena. The Regina Pats are the oldest major junior hockey franchise in the world that have continuously operated from their original location and use the same name. They began operations in 1917. They were originally named the Regina Patricia Hockey Club, after Princess Patricia of Connaught, the granddaughter of Queen Victoria and daughter of the Governor General (the Duke of Connaught). The team name was also associated with the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, named for the same Princess, to the point that Pats sweaters still bear the regimental badge and "PPCLI" flash as a shoulder patch. In 2017 the club celebrated its 100th anniversary. Games are broadcast on 620 CKRM radio.
In 1923, the team's name was shortened to the Pats. For the 1927–28 season the Pats merged with the Regina Falcons and called themselves the Regina Monarchs. The team went on to win the Memorial Cup that year and changed back to the Pats nickname in 1928–29. During the 1940s and 1950s the club was a farm team for the Montreal Canadiens.
The Pats played in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League from 1946 to 1948, the Western Canada Junior Hockey League (WCJHL) from 1948 to 1956, and then the revived Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) from 1956 to 1966. A charter member of the WCHL (currently called the WHL) in 1966, the Pats returned to the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League in 1968 so that they could qualify for the Memorial Cup, winning the league title in their first year. They returned to the WCHL for good in 1970. In their place the Regina Blues were formed as their farm team in the SJHL. The Blues folded in 1982. In 1977, they moved from Regina Exhibition Stadium to the adjacent and brand-new Agridome, since renamed the Brandt Centre. The Regina Pats are now owned by Queen City Sports and Entertainment Group, a consortium of owners that include Anthony Marquart (Governor), Todd Lumbard (President), Shaun Semple, Gavin Semple and Jason Drummond.
The Pats have been Memorial Cup (national Canadian junior hockey) champions 4 times (1925,1928,1930 and 1974) and western Canadian junior hockey champions 14 times (winning the Abbott Cup, precursor to major junior hockey and the WHL, in 1919, 1922, 1925, 1928, 1930, 1933, 1950, 1952, 1955, 1956, 1958 and 1969 and winning the WJHL title in 1974 and the WHL title in 1980). They were Saskatchewan junior hockey champions in 1918 (no inter-provincial or national championship play existed until 1919).
The Pats have appeared in more Memorial Cups than any other team (15), winning 4 times and finishing as the runner-up 9 times. They have been Memorial Cup hosts (either solely or jointly) 7 times: 1947, 1955, 1957, 1969, 1980, 2001 and 2018.
The club has twice won the Scotty Munro Memorial Trophy as Western Hockey League regular season champions – in 1973–74 and 2016–17.
John Paddock is the current general manager. David Struch is the current head coach and assistant general manager. Brad Herauf is an assistant coach.
