The Wheat Kings released nine players following Sunday's intrasquad game including 15-year old defenceman Colton Waltz, the club's first pick in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft.

Also released Sunday were defencemen Tanner Jago and Brett Blatz and forwards Taylor Wells, Bryn Chyzyk, Cody Nelson, Austin Lewis, Brendan Harms and Warren Callis.

The moves leave Brandon with 35 players on their pre-season roster -- five goaltenders, 12 defencemen and 18 forwards.
