Brandon Wheat Kings This Week — Nov.4

Brandon Wheat Kings Info For The Week Of Nov.4  — Nov. 10 —

The Brandon Wheat Kings have returned from their longest road trip of the 2013-14 Western Hockey League season.

After losing the first four games, the Wheat Kings scored back to back victories this past weekend to climb back to the .500 mark at 9-9-0.

Leading the way this past weekend were rookie netminder Jordan Papirny and 17-year old Jayce Hawryluk. A Roblin product, Hawryluk scored back to back hat tricks – his first two of his WHL career – and finished with eight points as Brandon doubled up on the Everett Silvertips 6-3 on Friday, before downing the Hurricanes 6-2 on Sunday afternoon in Lethbridge.

Papirny meanwhile was pressed into duty as veteran netminder Curtis Honey was unable to play over the weekend, due to an upper body injury. 

After a couple of days off, the Wheat Kings will return to the ice on Wednesday, in preparation for the coming weekend that will see Brandon play three home games in five days, beginning Thursday night against the visiting Saskatoon Blades.

The Canadian Hockey League today announced the launch of the third season of a league-wide initiative with member clubs and players participating in Movember to help change the face of men’s health.

As an official global charity, Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.  During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world. Through the power of the moustache, vital funds and awareness are raised to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges.

Last season 50 teams consisting of 792 registered members across the CHL, including the Western Hockey League’s Brandon Wheat Kings raised $175,583 and ranked 12th among all registered Canadian networks through their participation in Movember.  The CHL helped contribute to the over $37 million raised by participants across Canada and the $117 million raised worldwide.

This season, the Brandon Wheat Kings will be represented by captain Ryan Pulock as well as veterans Quintin Lisoway, Colton Waltz, Taylor Green, Jayce Hawryluk, Jens Meilleur, Kord Pankewicz, Eric Roy and Nick Walters as well as rookies Braylon Shmyr and Brett Kitt.

Among the activities planned for this month in Brandon include the annual Movember Tip a Wheat King Night at Applebee’s, scheduled for Wednesday, November 27th.


Thanks to his eight points over the past two games, Hawryluk has taken over the team scoring lead with nine goals and 19 points. John Quenneville is next at 8-9-17 followed by Richard Nejezchleb with 14 points, including a club high 11 goals.
