The final battle for the Ed Chynoweth Cup begins Friday in Brandon.
The Eastern Division champion Wheat Kings will host the Seattle Thunderbirds in Game 1 of the WHL final.
This is the 2nd straight year the Wheat Kings have been in the final, but it is the first appearance for the Thunderbirds since the 1997 season.
This will be the first time the two teams have ever met in the WHL final.
The winner will join the host the Red Deer Rebels as WHL representatives at the Mastercard Memorial Cup later this month.
