A 6’1” 185 lb Prince Albert product, Schneider had seven goals and 20 points with the AAA Bantam Raiders during the 2015-16 season.
Schneider was Brandon’s first round pick and 11th player selected in last month’s WHL Bantam Draft in Calgary.
The talented blueliner is thrilled to be an official member of the Wheat Kings’ organization, with today’s signing.
“Great players seem to come out of there,” he recently told Perry Bergson of the Brandon Sun. “They have great coaching and a great organization.”
In order to acquire Schneider, the Wheat Kings swapped first round picks with Moose Jaw, before adding a third and sixth round selection.
“This was a player that everyone on our staff really liked,” says Klippenstein. “He was one of the top defencemen in this year’s draft and he’s a guy that other teams won’t enjoy playing against.”
He becomes the first Saskatchewan born player to be chosen by the Wheat Kings in the first round since Eric Roy was taken with the 18th overall selection in 2009.
The Wheat Kings open up their 2016 Training Camp on August 30th at Westman Communications Group Place.
