The Brandon Regals were a minor pro team in Brandon, Manitoba. They played for two seasons in the Western Hockey League - 1955-56 and 1956-57. They played in the Wheat City Arena.
The Regals started out in Regina in the 1955-56 season but moved to Brandon in December because of low attendance.
They won the Lester Patrick Trophy (Western Hockey League championship) in 1956-57 and then lost the 1956-57 Edinburgh Trophy Final to the Quebec Aces. Despite their on-ice success, they lost a lot of money due to Brandon's small population.
The next season the Regals split their home games between Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and St. Paul, Minnesota as the Saskatoon/St. Paul Regals.
This was the only modern professional hockey team in Brandon.
