NWJHL team name change

Grande Prairie Kings adding "wheat" to its branding to reflect nearby farming heritage

Some more changes are coming to the Northwest Junior Hockey League.

Albeit, not as big as the decision this past spring to add teams from Beaverlodge and La Crete to its ranks.

The County of Grande Prairie Kings will now be known as the Wheat Kings.

The club saying, on its Facebook pages, it added “wheat” to its branding to “pay tribute to the local farming heritage in the county.”

Game and practice jerseys with the new logo are expected to arrive in time for the team's training camp later this month.
