BRANDON, MB. – The Brandon Wheat Kings have announced their roster for the 2020-21 Western Hockey League season.
The roster includes 16 returning players from the 2019-20 campaign and eight playing in their first Western Hockey League season. First year players include Jaxon Dube, Nate Danielson, Logen Hammett, Jacob Hoffrogge, Brett Hyland, Rylen Roersma, Connor Ungar and Tyson Zimmer. They will be looking to make an impact in their first season taking cues from the 16 returning players, in particular the team’s three 20-year-olds who are back for their final junior season; Lynden McCallum, Marcus Sekundiak and Reid Perepeluk.
The Wheat Kings’ season – taking place in the hub city of Regina, Saskatchewan – will feature 24 games between the seven East Division teams (Brandon, Moose Jaw, Prince Albert, Regina, Saskatoon, Swift Current, Winnipeg) beginning on March 12th.
Don MacGillivray will be stepping into his first season as Head Coach with the Wheat Kings and will be supported by assistant coaches Todd Miller and Mark Derlago, as well as video coach Dan Johnston. Behind the scenes, Scott Hlady returns as equipment manager, assisted by Jody Norminton, and William Sadonick-Carriere is back as Athletic Therapist.
