Hockey Hall of Famer Bryan Trottier will be the headline speaker for this season’s Brandon Wheat Kings CKLQ Sportsman’s Dinner.
A native of Val Marie, Sask., Trottier won the Stanley Cup six times during an 18-year National Hockey League career with the New York Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins.
The 16th highest-scoring player in NHL history, with 1,425 career points, he won the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s most valuable player in 1979 and the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP in 1980.
Also appearing at the dinner, set for Feb. 6 at the Keystone Centre’s UCT Pavilion, will be former Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Gord Stellick and comedian Andrew Grose.
Now working as a broadcaster, Stellick became the GM of the Maple Leafs in 1988 at the age of 30. A veteran of the standup comedy circuit, Grose has several TV credits to his name, including a one-hour special on the Comedy Network.
Tickets for the dinner, which helps raise money for the Wheat Kings’ Scholarship Foundation, cost $100 each and are available from the Wheat Kings’ office by calling 204-726-3535.
