Coulter Streaking for Wheat Kings

Tyler Coulter
  The Brandon Wheat Kings play their final home game of 2015 Tuesday night as they host the Moose Jaw Warriors (7:00 p.m., Westman Communications Group Place).

  Brandon forward Tyler Coulter takes an nine-game point-scoring streak Tuesday's contest, having scored five goals and ten points during a streak that is tied for the eighth-longest in the WHL this season.

  "It's been nice to finally get some results.  I've been working pretty hard lately, and it's been more of just going to the net and playing with good linemates," said Coulter on Monday, "We come out every night, we try to play as hard as we can and just go to the net and good things are happening."

  Coulter's continued contributions are especially important at this time for the Wheat Kings, who are missing five players due to injury or absences.

  "We're always trying to stay focused on the game ahead of us," said Coulter, "We know we have a lot of guys gone, guys hurt and I know it's kind of a thin lineup right now but it's a lot of minutes for a lot of guys and we just have to stay focused on what we have to to do."

  The Wheat Kings enter Tuesday's game with a two-point lead over second-place Prince Albert in the East Division standings.
