Sundher a Wheat King

Kevin Sundher
The Brandon Wheat Kings didn't wait unti Tuesday's deadline to pull the trigger on a major deal.

The Wheat Kings have acquired centre Kevin Sundher from the Victoria Royals for two players and a draft pick.

Sundher was a third round pick of Buffalo in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, signing an entry-level contract with the Sabres in December.

He is currently seventh in the Western Hockey League in scoring with 64 points

18-year old defenceman Jordan Fransoo, 17-year old forward Dakota Conroy and a first round pick in the 2012 Bantam Draft are headed to Victoria in the deal.

Sundher is expected to make his Wheat Kings' debut Wednesday night when Brandon hosts the Saskatoon Blades.

I caught up to Wheat Kings' general manager Kelly McCrimmon early Tuesday morning to discuss the Sundher deal.
