The Brandon Wheat Kings are a Canadian Major Junior hockey team from Brandon, Manitoba. They are members of the Western Hockey League (WHL), and a part of the Canadian Hockey League (CHL) and Hockey Canada.

The Wheat Kings joined the Western Canada Junior Hockey League, front runner of the Western Hockey League, for the 1967-68 season. Prior to that they played in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League, except for two seasons in the mid-1960s when they played in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. The team was known as the Brandon Elks for a short time in the late 1930s and again in the late 1940’s.. They won 8 Turnbull Cup Championships as Manitoba Junior Champions, 1939, 1947, 1949, 1950, 1960, 1962, 1963, & 1964 and appeared in the Memorial Cup five times: in 1949 (as an MJHL team), 1979, 1995, 1996 and 2010, losing each time, and will make a sixth appearance in 2016 as the WHL champions. The team plays its home games in Westman Communications Group Place (Keystone Centre). They also played at Wheat City Arena until 1969, and the Manex Arena from 1969 to 1972. Between 1973 and 1980, the Wheat Kings owned and operated a farm team in the MJHL, called the Travellers. The Wheat Kings are currently the only Western Hockey League franchise based in the province of Manitoba.
