The Brandon Wheat Kings already were a strong club in the WHL prior to that league’s 2015 trade deadline, but they look like a contender for a WHL championship now that the deadline has passed. The Wheat Kings site just three points behind the WHL-leading Kelowna Rockets while trying to stay ahead of a determined Medicine Hat Tigers squad.

On this Hockey’s Future podcast, HF’s WHL writer Glen Erickson runs down the strengths of the Wheat Kings’ lineup now that they have added some high-end talent to an already solid roster. Players discussed in this podcast include Morgan Klimchuk, Nolan Patrick, Ivan Provorov, and Kale Clague.
