Brandon Wheat Kings draft Stelio Mattheos first overall in WHL draft

  • Print

CALGARY - The Brandon Wheat Kings made Winnipeg centre Stelio Mattheos the first overall pick in the Western Hockey League bantam draft.

The six-foot-three, 177-pound forward recorded 50 goals and 53 assists for the triple-A Monarchs in 2013-14.

Brandon had the No. 1 pick because of a 2012 trade with the Saskatoon Blades, who acquired right-winger Brenden Walker in that transaction.

The Wheat Kings included in the deal the right to swap 2014 first-round picks with the Blades. Saskatoon won the WHL's draft lottery this year.

The Lethbridge Hurricanes took centre Jordan Bellerive of North Vancouver, B.C., at No. 2.

The Kamloops Blazers made defenceman Nolan Kneen, also of North Vancouver, the third overall selection.
