With the second overall selection in the draft the Virden Oil Capitals drafted Carson Buydens who tallied 46 points in just 34 games for the Central Plains Capitals.
Braden Keeble was the first member of the Brandon Wheat Kings Bantam AAA team to be drafted as Waywayseecappo selected him 15th overall in the second round of the draft. Teammate Rylan Hossack was then drafted several rounds later in the 4th by the Steinbach Pistons.
