Wheat Kings' Coach Likes Team's Direction at 1/4 Pole

The Brandon Wheat Kings enter the week sitting in a tie for top spot in the Western Hockey League's East Division.

Brandon is 11-5-1-1 through the first 18 games of the regular season, and their 24 points matches them with the Regina Pats.

"We know there's still areas to work on. We're talked about the penalty-kill, sometimes our consistency on home-ice," said Wheat Kings' coach Cory Clouston on Monday's Coaches Corner on CKLQ, "That's not a bad thing. You don't need to peak at this time of the year so we're consistently trying to improve our game, look at the areas where we can tweak it and that's what we're doing right now."

Brandon has a busy week ahead with four games in five days starting with Tuesday's contest in Saskatoon.

The Wheat Kings have had success on the road this season, going 7-3-0-0 in ten games.

"We've played well defensively, got good goaltending and you need that to win on the road, and we're been able to play just a solid road game," said Clouston, "Sometimes on the road, you keep it more simple, you don't try to complicate things and when you do that, usually that's a recipe to win."

Brandon will also visit Prince Albert on Wednesday before returning home for matchups against Swift Current on Remembrance Day afternoon and Prince Albert on Saturday night.

How long of a contract did Clouston sign? Is there an out if an NHL team came calling (not that I think one will). Just been some twitter chatter and curious what his contract status is.
