ScotiaBank Skills Day Plans Finalized


Ever wonder what member of the Wheat Kings has the hardest shot? Who is the fastest skater? Who is most accurate?

Those and many other questions should be answered Sunday afternoon when Scotiabank presents the 2012 Brandon Wheat Kings' Skills Day at Westman Communications Group Place.

Among the events that the players will be participating in will include Accuracy, Hardest Shot, Fastest Skater, Three-on-O, Puck Control and Team Breakaways.

Tickets for this Sunday's Skills Day, which gets underway at 2:00 p.m. are just $2 and will be available at the door or in advance at the Wheat Kings' office, BDO Fan Services during this weekend's games as well as both Scotiabank branches in Brandon.

In preparation for what should be an exciting afternoon, the Honorary Stick Kid Captains and lineups have been unveiled for this weekend's Skills Day.

Michaela Kelly of Shilo and Dylan Everett of Brandon have been chosen to serve as the Stick Kid Captains for Sunday's event, which is being held to raise money for Hockey Brandon Programs. This year marks the debut of Scotiabank as the Title Sponsor of this event.

Dylan will skate with Team White while Michaela will lead Team Black. This marks the first year since 2007 that the Wheat Kings have hosted a Skills Day, which is scheduled to get underway at 2pm Sunday.

In addition to skating with their favorite players, Dylan and Michaela will receive a Wheat Kings' replica jerseys, compliments of Scotiabank. The two were selected from entries received at both Brandon locations (Shoppers Mall and the corner of 10th Street and Rosser Avenue).
