The Brandon Wheat Kings continue their 7-game western road trip Tuesday night with a game against the Thunderbirds in Seattle.

The Wheat Kings, who are 1-2-0 through the first three games of this 13-day trip, expect to have some new faces in the lineup when they take to the ice to meet the T-Birds.

While the team recalled 16-year old right-winger Jack Palmer from the Saanich Braves of the Vancouver Island Hockey League on Monday, it was Sunday's moves by general manager Kelly McCrimmon that has western Manitoba hockey fans talking.

In addition to obtaining Washington Capitals' netminding prospect Brandon Anderson from Lethbridge in exchange for Spencer Galbraith and Liam Liston, the Wheat Kings were able to land 20-year old left-winger Darian Dziurzynski from the Saskatoon Blades for three bantam draft picks.

All three players could be in the Brandon lineup Tuesday as the Wheat Kings look to improve on their current record of 5-3-0-1.

Dziurzynski will be wearing #19 tonight while Anderson will inherit #33 from Liston, who made his Hurricane debut Monday night in a 4-2 loss to the defending Champion Kootenay Ice. Liston made 30 saves in a losing effort.

Brandon is coming off two full days off after falling 6-1 in Portland on Saturday night. Tonight's game is the second to last of the U.S. leg of this 7-game excursion. On Wednesday, the Wheat Kings will travel to Everett to meet the Silvertips before closing out their longest road trip of the season with back to back games this weekend against Medicine Hat and Lethbridge on Friday and Saturday nights.

Wheat Kings' captain Mark Stone enters Tuesday's game riding a league high 9-game point scoring streak. As well, the 19-year old Winnipeg product shares the WHL scoring lead with Medicine Hat's Emerson Etem and Adam Hughesman of the Tri-City Americans. All three players have 21 points each.

Stone, who signed an NHL Entry Level Contract with the Ottawa Senators in September, is currently in his fourth Western League season and in 175 career games, he has scored 194 points, including 71 goals.

As for the T-Birds, Seattle is riding a modest 3-game win streak after opening the 2011-12 campaign with three straight losses. Through the first six games, veteran Marcel Noebels leads the team in scoring with four goals in 4 games.

Noebels is one of three NHL draft picks on this year's T-Bird roster, joining Buffalo Sabres' prospect Colin Jacobs and veteran netminder Calvin Pickard of Winnipeg, who was chosen by the Colorado Avalanche in the 2010 National Hockey League Entry Draft.

Pickard, who played in 68 of Seattle's 72 games last season, has appeared in all six games this year, posting a 3.61 goals against average and a .908 save percentage. During the 2011-12 campaign, he compiled a 3.36 goals against average for a Seattle team that went 27-35-5-5 and finished fifth in the 5-team U.S. Division of the Western Conference.
