Wiebe Joins AHL's Whale

It looks like the hand injury suffered by Shayne Wiebe during the Brandon's final playoff game Monday isn't too serious.

The former Wheat Kings' captain has joined the Connecticut Whale, signing an amateur tryout agreement with the AHL affiliate of the New York Rangers.

Wiebe notched 44 goals and 65 points in 72 regular season contests and added four goals and eight points in six playoff contests with the Wheat Kings this season.

Wiebe could make his AHL debut on Friday night when the Whale visit the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
