Wheat Kings Set Pre-Season Roster at 27

The Brandon Wheat Kings cut down to 27 players following their intrasquad game on Sunday.

The players assigned back to other clubs were:
G Tyler Fuhr
G Curtis Honey
G Jordan Papirny
D Ty Webber
D Kord Pankeowicz
D Riley Van Horne
D Dominic Thom
F Jack Palmer
F Dallas Starodub
F Jayce Hawryluk
F Kailum Gervais
F Quinton Lisoway
F Brett Kitt
F Kyler Hehn
F Ryley Lindgren
F Liam Gregor
F Hunter Smith
F Matt Hadley
F Daniel Taillefer

Of course, Papirney, Pankewicz, Van Horne, Thom, Starodub, Hawryluk, Kitt, Lindgren and Gregor were all 2011 Bantam Draft picks who were ineligible to play in the WHL on a full-time basis this season.

The other big news released on Sunday evening was that 20-year old defenceman Brodie Melnychuk suffered a broken wrist during training camp on Saturday and will be sidelined indefinitely.

Melnychuk joins fellow returnees Brenden Walker (head) and Jason Swyripa (knee) on the sidelines.
