Wheat Kings Keep 29 on Pre-Season Roster

  The Wheat Kings re-assigned 15 players following Sunday's intrasquad game, retaining 29 players for their pre-season roster -- 18 forwards, eight defencemen and three goaltenders.
  Among those sticking around are three players selected in the 2015 bantam draft in first round pick Caiden Daley, third round pick Rylan Bettens and Medora product Garrett Sambrook.
  All three are ineligible to play full-time in the WHL this season.
  2014 first overall pick Stelio Mattheos and Brandon product Ty Lewis are among the other eight rookies joining 18 returning players on the pre-season roster.
  Mattheos and Lewis both spent considerable time with the Wheat Kings last season.
  Brandon product Connor Gutenberg and blueliner Dane Hirst are the other 16-year old rookies while 17-yaer old forward Linden McCorrister and netminders Josh Dechaine and Logan Thompson round out the rookie contingent.
