Scottsdale native, Jr. Coyotes, NDP alum Hordichuk signs agreement with WHL’s Pats


The Regina Pats have signed 2009-born forward Braden Hordichuk to a Western Hockey League scholarship and development agreement.

Hordichuk was drafted by the Pats with the first-overall pick of the 2024 U.S. Priority Draft.

The Scottsdale product tallied 32 points (20 goals, 12 assists) in 37 games in 2023-24 with the Jr. Coyotes’ 14U AAA team, finishing second on his club in points and goals. He posted 37 points (27 goals, 10 assists) with Notre Dame Prep (AHSHA) in the 2022-23 season, once again leading his team in points and goals.

“Hordichuk projects as a power forward in the WHL,” said Regina GM Alan Millar. “Pats fans can expect a very hard working, competitive player in Braden, with offensive upside in his game.”

Hordichuk has roots to Saskatchewan as his father Darcy hails from Kamsack, Sask., playing his 18U AAA hockey with the Yorkton Mallers in 1996-97. Darcy then played in the WHL with the Calgary Hitmen and Saskatoon Blades from 1998-2000 and was later drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers in 2000.
