Krzyzaniak On Move & Other Notes

The Brandon Wheat Kings have reduced their roster to 27 players.

The club has designated 18-year old defenceman Kyle Krzyzaniak for assignment.

Krzyzaniak appeared in one game with Brandon this season, going pointless with a +1 rating.

The move leaves Brandon with 16 forwards, eight defencemen and three goaltenders on their active roster.

Multiple sources indicate Krzyzaniak's WHL rights have been traded to the Spokane Chiefs.

His Junior A rights belong to the SJHL's Humboldt Broncos.

-----------------------------------------------------

It looks like defenceman Jordan Fransoo could be back in the Wheat Kings' lineup sooner rather than later.

Fransoo missed this past weekend's action with a broken left foot but skated on his own before practice on Tuesday.

The 17-year old rookie has one goal and three points in six games this year.

-----------------------------------------------------

Former Brandon Wheat King Jay Fehr is now a university student.

After participating in the Minnesota Wild's rookie camp and a failed tryout with the AHL's Houston Aeros, Fehr has joined the Acadia Axemen.

Among this teammates there are former Wheat Kings Nathan Green and Andrew Clark, Brandon product Zach McMillan and Deloraine product Jacob Dietrich.

Brandon other graduated players from last season are playing professional hockey. Matt Calvert is with the AHL's Springfield Falcons, the farm team of the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets, while Aaron Lewadniuk is with the ECHL's Ontario Reign.

-----------------------------------------------------

Former Wheat King Stephane Robidoux is back in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.

The Portland Winterhawks assigned Robidoux back to the Waywayseecappo Wolverines on Tuesday.

Robidoux appeared in two games with Portland this season, going pointless with a -2 rating.

-----------------------------------------------------

Schenn Update.

Brayden played in the Los Angeles Kings' home-opener last night against Atlanta.

He saw 9:35 of ice-time, was -1 and recorded one shot on goal.

Interestingly, he got absolutely no power-play time, although the Kings had just two power-play chances and one was an abbreviated one.

-----------------------------------------------------

Mark Schneider made his Regina Pats' debut last night.

The former Brandon Wheat King was pointless, had an even plus/minus rating and took a minor penalty in Regina's 2-0 loss to the Kootenay Ice.

Schneider was dealt to the Pats for forward Dominick Favreau on Sunday.
