Fifty prospects are expected to hit the ice when Brandon Wheat Kings rookie camp begins on Wednesday morning at Westman Place.
Rookies are scheduled to register for camp tonight, with the Western Hockey League club beginning on-ice sessions bright and early at 8 o’clock. Scrimmages are slated for 9:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, the first of two days of ice sessions before main camp begins on Friday morning.
Roughly 35 rookies are expected to advance to main camp where they will be joined by 17 veteran players. Training camp will wrap up with Sunday’s annual Wheat King intrasquad game at 2 p.m.
In other news, the club has teamed up with Frank’s Computer to launch a free Wheat Kings mobile application for Apple, Android and BlackBerry this season. In addition to real-time scoring data, game summaries and statistics, fans will be able to purchase tickets online and receive breaking news and headlines.
