Wheat Kings, Grant Armstrong part ways


Earlier today, the Brandon Wheat Kings made an announcement that GM Grant Armstrong would not have his contract renewed by the hockey club.

“I’d like to thank Grant for his contribution to our organization,” says McCrimmon, who was named the new General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Vegas Golden Knights last week. “He was responsible for many of the moves that will serve us well in the future.”

“At the same time, I also felt a change was necessary as we look to return to a higher level as an organization,” he went on to say.

No timetable has been set for naming a replacement.
