WHL Trade Rumors Update – Schenn and Weal

It looks as though a new team may possibly be in on the Brayden Schenn sweepstakes.

As reported here, there is strong speculation that Schenn will be traded by the Brandon Wheat Kings prior to Monday’s WHL Trade Deadline – with the front runners believed to be the Portland Winterhawks and his hometown Saskatoon Blades.

Stories out of Saskatoon yesterday already had Blades’ GM and head coach Lorne Molleken admitting that he had spoken to the Wheat Kings about possibly acquiring Schenn.

Now, according to an article in Regina’s Leader Post, the Kootenay Ice are “among the suitors.”

They’re battling Saskatoon for the best overall record in the WHL and both teams have made it clear “they want to make a splash at the deadline.”

The same article goes on to say the Regina Pats “have already received legitimate offers for star center Jordan Weal, but he’s believed to be strictly off limits, unless of course a team literally offers the sun and the moon.”

Regina, currently tenth is their conference, is expected to make some moves. The question is, are they buyers or sellers?

More to come as information becomes available.
