If the Brandon Wheat Kings make the postseason this year, they'll be playing two of their first-round games once again at Credit Union Place during the week of March 26.
Right now the Wheat Kings are sitting in the top Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference, eight points clear of Saskatoon.
"We were at Credit Union Place last year, and the community was great to us," said David Anning, Head Coach of the Wheat Kings. "It was an easy adjustment for our team. The facility is first class, it was easy to deal with everyone and the attendance was great. Being out of our building is never ideal, but Credit Union Place was definitely the first choice for us."
It's been an interesting year for the Wheat Kings. At one point, they were battling for the top spot with Moose Jaw and Swift Current in the East Division, but a significant deadline day that saw the team trade Tanner Kaspick and Kale Clague changed the team's dynamic.
"It took us a little bit longer to adjust after we made those trades," said Anning. "But, as of late our group is starting to come together, and it's an important time of the year to do that. We're hoping we can continue to build, and carry the momentum forward."
The Wheat Kings beat the Warriors this past weekend, 4-2 on home ice and played a close game on Saturday in a loss against Swift Current. Moose Jaw is on top of the East Division, while Swift Current is second.
"That win definitely has given us some confidence," said Anning. "Moose Jaw is the top team in our division for a good reason because they're a good team. We're focusing right now on the structure of our game, and making sure our guys are working hard every day to give us a good chance at winning every night."
Ticket information for the games at Credit Union Place will be available shortly.
