Wheat Kings Gear Up for Prospects Camp

Jack Palmer, son of former NHLer Brad Palmer,
will be one of the Prospects participating
in camp this weekend.
Future Brandon Wheat Kings will be on display this weekend as the club holds its annual Prospects Camp.
The camp will include one on-ice session per day and a number of other activities for the players and organization to get to know one another.

"It's basically an orientation to meet the people in the organization and, in some cases, some of these players have never been to Brandon and seen our facilities," says Wheat Kings' GM/Coach Kelly McCrimmon, "They get to see our school, meet with our guidance councillor, our strength coach."

Those things will be particularly important for the 1996-born players who just became members of the organization through the WHL Bantam Draft three weeks ago.

Meanwhile, the 1995 and, in particularly, the 1994-born players will be looked at a little differently this weekend.

"You really are trying to get an idea on exactly on what they're going to be able to contribute to this year's team," says McCrimmon, "You hope those players are going to challenge for spots and then, of the course, the players that are going to 16 this year, you're looking to see if anyone is going to be ready to press for a spot on this year's team and if not, how far away they are."

26 players are expected to participate in the camp with nine Manitobans unable to participate because they will be attending Hockey Manitoba POE Camps in Winnipeg this weekend.

As I reported earlier this month, those player are:

1995-Born Players
D Garrett Bruce
D Nolan Speiss
F Matthew Hadley
F Daniel Taillefer
F Quintin Lisoway

1996-Born Players
F Jayce Hawryluk
F Brett Kitt
F Dallas Starodub
F Ryley Lindgren

The Wheat Kings' on-ice sessions at Prospects Camp are open to the public and will all take place at Westman Communications Group Place.

Those sessions are at 5 p.m. today (Friday), 9 a.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. on Sunday.

Meanwhile, just to get you geared up for the Wheat Kings' Prospects Camp, here's a look at the club's possible future players.

Again, as always, I caution that this is not an official list, but it's pieced together to the best of my ability.

Number of parenpheses is the player's age for the 2011-2012 season.
