Wheat Kings deal Palmer to Royals



The Brandon Wheat Kings dealt 18-year old right-winger Jack Palmer to the Victoria Royals in exchange for two fifth round picks in the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft on Wednesday.

A former eighth round bantam draft choice of the Wheat Kings, Palmer had one goal and three points in 15 games with Brandon this season.

In 77 career WHL games, the 6-foot-1, 183 pound Victoria product had 15 points, including four goals.

Wednesday's trade comes one day after the Wheat Kings sent a third round bantam pick to the Prince George Cougars for the playing rights to 19-year-old Peter Quenneville. 

This week's moves leaves the Wheat Kings with 24 players on their active roster - two goalkeepers, seven defencemen and 15 forwards.
