Winkler Waived by Wheat Kings

Dario Winkler has been waived by the Wheat Kings
  The Brandon Wheat Kings got down to the CHL limit of two import players early Friday afternoon by placing Austrian forward Dario Winkler on waivers.

  Winkler was the club's second round pick in the 2015 CHL Import Draft and had gone pointless in two regular season games this season after having one assists in four pre-season games.

  Other WHL teams will have until Tuesday to file a claim on the 18-year old forward.

  The waiving of Winkler leaves the Wheat Kings with defenceman Ivan Provorov and forward Rihards Bukarts as import players on their roster.

  Bukarts is also one of five 20-year old players on the Wheat Kings' roster.

  The deadline for WHL teams to get down to the maximum of three 20-year old players in October 15th.
