The Western Hockey League's Brandon Wheat Kings have reassigned 16-year old rookie Ryley Lindgren to the Winnipeg Thrashers of the Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey League.

A 5'10" 165 lb native of East St. Paul, Manitoba, Lindgren was Brandon's fifth round selection (96th overall) in the 2011 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft.

Lindgren, who scored fourteen goals and 27 points in 43 games for the AAA Sharks in Winnipeg last season, appeared in Brandon's 3-2 season opening victory over the Regina Pats on Friday night. In three pre-season games, he had one assist and one minor penalty.

The Wheat Kings, who play host to the Saskatoon Blades tonight at Westman Place, now have twenty-five players on their active roster - two goalkeepers, eight defenceman and 15 forwards.
