Ex-Wheaties sign deals

A pair of former Brandon Wheat Kings teammates have signed contracts to play professional hockey overseas.

Brandonite Shayne Wiebe has signed with EHC Olten of National League B, Switzerland’s second-highest level of hockey. Meanwhile, Brent Raedeke has inked a two-year deal with the Iserlohn Roosters of the German Elite League.

Both forwards were acquired by the Wheat Kings during their Memorial Cup host season of 2009-10. Raedeke, 23, turned professional the next season and spent three years in the Detroit Red Wings’ system with the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins. He peaked at 11 goals and 21 points in 64 games during the 2011-12 season before falling to three goals and nine points in 38 games last winter.

Wiebe, also 23, stuck around for one more year in Brandon, captaining the Wheat Kings in 2010-11 and scoring 44 goals. He has played at the minor pro and university levels in the two years since then, totalling eight goals and 15 points in 37 games between the AHL’s Connecticut Whale and the Greenville Road Warriors of the ECHL last season.
