Wheat Kings Deal Daley to Pats

Daley, 19, was midway into his fourth season with the Western Hockey League’s Wheaties when he received word that he had been dealt. After playing his Midget AAA with the Wild, Daley joined Brandon for the 2016-17 season, in which begun his WHL career. In 227 career games with the Wheat Kings, the 6-foot-1, 185-pound winger put up 18 goals, 56 points and 55 penalty minutes.

Pierce, 19, is a 6-foot-1, 190-pound winger, also out of Winnipeg, who played his AAA Bantam and Midget hockey with the Hawks and Thrashers, respectively. Despite dressing in 26 games for the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s Portage Terriers in 2017-18, Pierce has mainly skated with the Regina Pats for the past three-and-a-half seasons, putting up eight goals, 24 points and 84 penalty minutes in 97 career games.

“Duncan is a hardworking, physical player that will help our penalty kill. A fresh start should benefit both players,” said Wheat Kings GM Darren Ritchie in a team-issued press release. “We would like to thank Caiden for his work on and off the ice as a member of the Wheat Kings.”

After going 6-9-0 through the first 15 games of the 2019-20 season, the Brandon Wheat Kings will look to build off of their 5-1 victory over the Swift Current Broncos on Saturday. The two teams will meet again Friday evening at Westoba Place in Brandon for a 7:30 PM central puck drop.
