Brandon, MB. – This weekend’s pre-season home and home series with the Moose Jaw Warriors may be dominating the Brandon Wheat Kings’ thoughts this weekend but comeSunday, a number of them will be assisting the Brandon Humane Society with their annualWag-a-Tail Walkathon at Brandon’s Kin Park (located on the corner of 1st Street and Aberdeen Avenue).
Nine members of the hockey club including local products Ty Lewis and James Shearer will be on hand to sign autographs, take photographs with the fans and help out with the barbecue.
Joining them will be Caiden Daley, Jordan Papirny, Garrett Armour, Jordan Wharrie, Stelio Mattheos, Nolan Patrick as well as Philadelphia Flyers first round draft choice Ivan Provorov.
