Zack Whitecloud to play first NHL game Thursday against Oilers


According to a post on his fathers Facebook page, Brandon’s Zack Whitecloud is scheduled to suit up in his first NHL game against the lowly Edmonton Oilers on Thursday.  Whitecloud recently signed a three-year, entry-level deal with the Las Vegas Golden Knights after finishing his sophomore season at Bemidji State.  Zach skated with the Brandon AAA Midget Wheat Kings in the 2013-14 season, and followed that up by playing two seasons with the MJHL’s Virden Oil Capitals.
