The Brandon Wheat Kings shutout the Kelowna Rockets 3-0 Wednesday night.

The Wheat Kings got off to a great start Wednesday night scoring the opening goal with Nate Danielson crashing the net collecting a rebound on the right side to make it 1-0 Wheat Kings heading into the second period.

The Wheat Kings would score a pair in the second. First Andrei Malyavin would score his first WHL goal from a shot from the point to make it 2-0. Then during a Wheat Kings powerplay Nate Danielson would fire a shot which would get redirected by Nolan Ritchie to give the Wheat Kings a 3-0 lead in the third period.

Carson Bjarnason would stand tall the rest of the way stopping all 29 shots he faced to pick up his first career WHL shutout.

The 3 Stars:

Carson Bjarnason (29 Saves)
Nate Danielson  (1G-1A)
