An 18-year old hockey player from Lauder, Manitoba will be recognized during this Friday's Western Hockey League game at Westman Place between the Brandon Wheat Kings and visiting Moose Jaw Warriors.

Brittany Phillips was a member of the Canadian team that recently captured a silver medal at the IIHF Under 18 Womens World Championships in Fussen, Germany.

The Canadian entry lost out to the defending champion United States in the gold medal final earlier this month.

A cousin to current Wheat King Del Cowan, Brittany will be honoured as January's recipient of the Wheat Kings' Manitoba Blue Cross Performer of the Month Award.

A current member of the Westman Wildcats, a highly competitive program based out of southwestern Manitoba, the Hartney School student plans to attend Colgate University (NCAA Division 1) in New York this fall.

Brittany becomes the third recipient of the Manitoba Blue Cross Performer of the Month recipient for 2008-09. This year marks the fifth season that western Manitoba hockey fans have been given the opportunity to visit the Wheat Kings' official web site and nominate coaches, volunteers, athletes and officals for this prestigious award.

Friday's game will be the first of back to back home games for the Wheat Kings this weekend. Brandon will take on the visiting Kootenay Ice the following night.

Tickets to both games are on sale now at the Keystone Centre box office, by calling 726-3555 or online at
