The Brandon Wheat Kings have dealt defender Mason Ward(’02) to the Swift Current Broncos, in exchange for blue liner Kayden Sadhra-Kang(’03).

Ward, 20, was acquired in May 2021 as a part of a deal that involved goaltender Conor Ungar going to the Red Deer Rebels back in May 2021.  The Lloyminster, AB native played 24 games in the black and gold, picking up 10 goals and 14 assists in 66 games played.

Sadhra-Kang, 19, was originally drafted by the Lethbridge Hurricanes in the 9th round of the 2018 WHL Prospects draft and later dealt to the Swift Current Broncos in October 2021. The Richmond, BC native currently has  1 goal and 9 assists this season. Sadhra-Kang brings some size to the Wheat Kings lineup at 6’4, 202 lbs.

“We decided to make a hockey trade and I believe it makes sense for both teams,” stated Wheat Kings Head Coach & General Manager Marty Murray. “Both players are defensively minded and are big bodies. We like the fact that Sadhra-Kang is a year younger. That was our rational on our end”.

The Brandon Wheat Kings organization wishes Mason all the best with his new club. We also would like to welcome Kayden & his family to the City of Brandon and the Wheat Kings organization.
