Wheat Kings' Fans Want to Rewrite History

Brandon Wheat Kings' fans looking to rewrite history now have their opportunity.

EA Sports NHL 11 hit store shelves on Tuesday, with this year's version including all the teams in the Canadian Hockey League including the Wheat Kings.

Among the features in NHL 11 is the ability for games to make a run at the Memorial Cup or simply replay a head-to-head game between Brandon and the Windsor Spitfires.

Bryce Todorovich, manager of EB Games in Brandon, says there's been plenty of hype about the game.

"It's been creating a lot of buzz, it's positive energy. Everyone's coming in here, they're pretty excited for it," says Todorovich, "A lot of fans, myself including, to be able to play the Wheat Kings is pretty neat."

EA Sports and the CHL announced a four-year agreement at the 2010 MasterCard Memorial Cup to have the league's 60 teams featured in the game for the first time.

NHL 11 also has another Wheat Kings' relation as Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews adorns the cover.

Toews' younger brother David is in his first season with Brandon.
