Since the opening night of the Saskatchewan Bantam AA Hockey League, the West Central Wheat Kings have been one of the very best teams in the province.

Through the first 14 games of the regular season, the Wheat Kings have managed to win 11 of those games with only 2 regulation loss, and one tie. To gain 23 points in the standings of a possible 28 points is nothing short of spectacular, and has helped shape the Wheat Kings to stay in contention with the very best teams in the province.

Chris Keleher, head coach of the Wheat Kings, talks about some of the positives he's taken out of the season so far.

"So far, so good, we're sitting in the top half of the North Division. I'm very happy with where we are at, as we have games in hand on the teams ahead of us in the standings." Keleher said.

The competition has improved over the years in the North Division when the teams from Saskatoon decided to enter just four teams, rather than five. Keleher talked about how he has noticed a difference in his 3rd season involved with the league.

"As far as the Saskatoon teams, this is my third year involved. This may be the best looking Saskatoon teams up to date in my opinion. We have played all four Saskatoon teams and all of our games have come down to the final minutes."

Looking ahead to the month of December, the Wheat Kings will play a total of seven regular season games in a span of fifteen days before the Christmas break takes place. Some of the games are at home, while the team will have to endure long miles for traveling for the away games.

"We're back at it on the 8th so we will get a couple practices in before that. It's a pretty heavy schedule and it's going to be a big opportunity for us as we try and catch those top teams in the standings."
