“We are thrilled to host the Prospects Camp and have the opportunity to witness the exceptional talent in our development system,” said Marty Murray, General Manager and Head Coach of the Brandon Wheat Kings. “This camp serves as a valuable step in our team’s talent acquisition process, and we are excited to see the potential that these young players bring to the ice.”
Over thirty players are expected, all of the participating players, who were born in 2006, 2007 or 2008, were drafted or listed by the Western Hockey League club. The camp is designed to introduce the organization to its prospects and their families.
“It’s primarily about providing families with information about our organization, our principles, and our approach,” explained Chris Moulton, Director of Hockey Operations for the Wheat Kings. “Our main goal is to create an environment where players can feel at ease and be their authentic selves on the ice.”
“Their focus isn’t solely on making our team within a week. Instead, their time here is dedicated to gaining insights into our organization and its values.”
Among the 31 players attending this week are forwards Joby Baumuller, Jaxon Jacobson and Defenceman Giorgos Pantelas, who were all chosen by the Wheat Kings in the opening round in the last 2 WHL Bantam Drafts.
The J and G Homes Arena, a state-of-the-art facility known for its exceptional facilities and fan-friendly atmosphere, will provide the perfect backdrop for the Prospects Camp.
