By the Numbers...

The Wheat Kings have played eight games, or 1/9th of the Western Hockey League regular season.

Here's some #'s to chew on...

2.39, .918 - combined goals against average and save percentage of Wheat Kings' rookie goaltenders Liam Liston, Ty Rimmer and Corbin Boes this season.

2.68 - the lowest single season goals against average in Wheat Kings' history, recorded last year by Andrew Hayes.

56 - percent of goals (15 of 27) scored by first-year players with the Wheat Kings this season.

17 - number of first-year players to have dressed at least one game with the Wheat Kings this season.

22 - consecutive power-play chances the Wheat Kings have been unsuccessful on the last four games.

4,582 - average attendance through the first four home games of the regular season.

85 - games dressed by first-year players this season, or 53% of the lineup.

21 - By my count, the number of man games lost due to injury so far this season.
