Ferland to Sit for Three

Michael Ferland will be out of the Brandon Wheat Kings' lineup for the next three games starting with Friday's contest with the Red Deer Rebels.

The 19-year old Ferland was handed a three-game sentence by the Western Hockey League late Friday afternoon for his end of game fight with Vancouver's Wes Vannieuwenhuizen during Wednesday's 5-4 victory over the Giants.

Vannieuwenhuizen was also suspended for three games by the WHL, while the Giants were fined $250 dollars.

The Wheat Kings were not fined for the incident.

These two suspensions plus one a six-game sentence handed out to Lukas Walter of the Tri-City Americans for a one-man fight on Wednesday pushes the WHL total to 52 suspensions for the season (including pre-season) for a total of 159 games.
