Brandon Wheat Kings Minor Hockey Caravan in Holland


by Patti Hacault, Staff Reporter


Young enthusiastic hockey players thrive on the opportunity to be able to share some ice time with their junior local “special” hockey players from the Brandon Wheat Kings.


The atmosphere at the Holland Ice Garden was electric on Tuesday, October 18th, as skaters had the opportunity to jump-start their season with a practice alongside three Wheat King players.  It was the first stop of the Brandon Wheat Kings Minor Hockey Caravan.


Joining the skaters and their coaches were Garret Armour (forward), Stelio Matthoes (forward) and Logan Thompson (goalie).    


The popular Minor Hockey Caravan for the 2016-17 Western Hockey League season was made possible through support of Sunrise Credit Union and McDonald’s of Canada.   Members of the Wheat Kings will be visiting five western Manitoba communities this season, practicing with area teams, signing autographs and distributing complimentary tickets to all minor hockey players.
