New GM to help find David Anning's successor


From the Brandon Wheat Kings front office:

The Brandon Wheat Kings will have a new head coach for the 2019-20 Western Hockey league season.

Brandon Owner and Governor Kelly McCrimmon has announced a change in the coaching ranks of the hockey club as Head Coach David Anning's contract will not be renewed.

"We would like to thank David for his seven years with our organization." said McCrimmon.
This is the second significant move made by McCrimmon this spring.

In early May, he relieved Grant Armstrong from his duties as general manager.

"He was an important part of our Championship team and aided in the development of many of our players. We wish him the best in his next coaching opportunity," McCrimmon said.

A search for Anning's successor will begin immediately.

The Wheat Kings new GM is expected to play an integral role in the hiring process of the new head coach.
