Brandon Wheat Kings down Seattle ThunderBirds, 8-4, to take WHL trophy

Seattle Thunderbirds right wing Josh Uhrich, center, celebrates his equalizing goal to bring the score to 1-1 in the first period as he skates over to Seattle Thunderbirds left wing Andreas Schumacher, who assisted him, during Game 5 of the WHL Championship Series at the ShoWare Center in Kent on Friday, May 13, 2016.

Seattle came back from a 3-1 deficit and even led, 4-3, late in the third period, but Brandon pulled away. Nolan Patrick, who many believe could be the top pick in June’s National Hockey League draft and was voted the playoff MVP, broke a 4-4 tie in the third period.
