Seaman Sidelined Again

Tyrel Seaman
There could be bad news for the Brandon Wheat Kings on the injury front.

Tyrel Seaman missed practice today (Thursday) with an 'upper body' injury that was suffered late in the third period of last night's overtime victory over Regina.

It appears there may have been a whiplash affect on Seaman after he was on the back end of a domino collision involving defenceman Ryley Miller and Regina forward Jordan Weal.

Seaman seemed to be 'out of sorts' when he went to the bench after the collision.

His status for Friday's home game against the Edmonton Oil Kings is not known.

Seaman had just returned to the Brandon lineup Wednesday night after missing more than a month and nine games with a concussion.

Canada looks to improve to 3-and-0 tonight at the World Junior Hockey Championship when they faceoff with Denmark in Edmonton.

Wheat Kings' forward Mark Stone will try to continue his remarkable run.

Including the Canadian Team Selection Camp, Stone has scored a goal in six consecutive games or scrimmages and, including Brandon games, has scored in 24 of the last 30 games he's played.

-----------------------------------------------

The World Under-17 Hockey Challenge opens for real tonight in Windsor.

Wheat Kings' rookie Ayrton Nikkel and Team Pacific face off with Team West in their opening game.

Nikkel was pointless in Pacific's 4-1 exhibition win over Sweden last night.
