Brandon, MB – The Brandon Wheat Kings finally returned home to Westoba Place on Sunday afternoon for the annual Futures Game, this time with a new twist: Team Provorov vs Team Stone.
Close to 500 fans watched as Team Provorov beat Team Stone by a score of 4-2.
Nate Danielson and Ty Zimmer had two goals a piece while Mason Ward picked up a pair of assists for Team White.
Vincent Iorio and Tyden Redlick rounded out the scoring.
Both teams were relatively young, with nineteen 2005 born players combined. Five returning Wheat Kings did not take part in the game due to NHL Camps, while Belarussian import Zakhar Polshakov is expected to arrive in Brandon in the next week.
