Former Wheat Kings' Great Bill Fairbairn

Bill Fairbairn starred with the Brandon Wheat Kings from 1964 to 1967, teaming with Juha Widing as the first real big offensive stars for Brandon in the WCHL.

Fairbairn went on to play 658 games in the NHL, the majority of which were with the New York Rangers.

He dropped the ceremonial opening faceoff before Wednesday's game between the Wheat Kings and Calgary and, then, joined us for a few minutes in the CKLQ Broadcast Booth.
