No Suspension for Walters

Nick Walters
The Brandon Wheat Kings will have defenceman Nick Walters in their lineup when they visit the Swift Current Broncos on Sunday night (6:35 p.m., 880 CKLQ).

Walters was assessed a checking-to-the-head major in Friday’s 7-4 loss in Saskatoon for a first period hit on Saskatoon forward Shane McColgan, who was not injured on the play.

The penalty that was automatically reviewed by the Western Hockey League office and after that review, the WHL decided to rescind the penalty meaning no suspension was deemed necessary.

The Wheat Kings will be trying to snap a three-game losing streak and a five-game winless streak on the road on Sunday night.
