“Patrick raised the standard and expectations of our team, and he was such a key player to our success,” says Red Wings Head Coach Brian Casey. “He is the ultimate teammate and his leadership qualities both on and off the ice is outstanding. Our organization couldn’t be prouder for Patrick as he enters the next phase in his career in becoming a student athlete at a respectful institution and hockey program at Wilfred Laurier”.
