Roger McQueen scored twice for the Brandon Wheat Kings in a 4-3 win Wednesday over the visiting Prince Albert Raiders in the Western Hockey League.

The Moose Jaw Warriors doubled the Regina Pats 4-2 in the other lone game on the WHL schedule.

Carter Klippenstein and Nolan Flamand also scored for Brandon (2-0-1) with goalie Ethan Eskit stopping 27 shots for the win.

Oli Chenier, Grady Martin and Krzysztof Macias scored for Prince Albert (1-2-0). Raiders goalie Max Hildebrand made 28 saves in the loss.

Aso Wednesday, the WHL announced a 25-game suspension to Victoria Royals forward Alex Edwards for checking Everett Silvertips defenceman Dexter Whittle during the second period of Saturday's game.

Edwards was assessed a match penalty for intent to injure on the play, in which he drove Whittle into the end boards.

The WHL said a pair of suspensions to Edwards last season factored into the discipline. He's eligible to return to the Royals lineup Dec. 1.


Warriors goalie Jackson Unger made 34 saves and winger Eric Alarie had a goal and an assist for Moose Jaw (1-2-0). Jagger Firkus, Atley Calvert and Lynden Lakovic also scored for the visiting Warriors.

Taylor Howe had a goal and an assist for the Pats (2-1). Tye Spencer also scored with goalie Kelton Pyne stopping 23 shots in the loss.
