Rookie Camp Ends; Main Camp Opens

The rookie portion of the Brandon Wheat Kings' training camp came to a close last night with an intrasquad game.

Brett Kitt, Zach Sackett, Taylor Sanheim and Liam Gregor scored for Team Black in a 4-2 victory over Team White.

Devin Muir and Taylor Cooper scored for Team White.

35 players that participated in Rookie Camp were held over for Main Camp including Neepawa product Quinton Lisoway.

"I'm excited for that. I have no problem playing in a fast-paced game," said Lisoway after Thursday's rookie intrasquad game, "I like it better than playing a slow-paced game because I don't play as well in a slow-paced game, to be honest."

Lisoway was a ninth round pick of Brandon in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft and had a trying season with the AAA Midget Yellowhead Chiefs last winter...a season that ended in January thanks to a spleen injury.

"I was out for six weeks and I couldn't do anything at all. I couldn't work out, I couldn't shoot pucks, I couldn't even skate," said Lisoway , "Going through that, it was tough. I put on quite a few pounds over that period too...bad pounds, not the ones that I need."

The 5-foot-9, 173 pound Lisoway finished his season with seven goals and 16 points in 30 games with the Chiefs.
