Todd Bredo is still with the Wranglers but in 2015-16, he split his time between three teams, Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Okotoks Oilers, Saskatchewan Junior Hockey Leagues’s Kindersley Klippers, and the Wranglers. Only combining for seven games with the two former teams, Bredo found himself at home in 100 Mile, where he patrolled the blue-line for 33 games, scoring three goals and nine assists during the regular season. In the playoffs, he laced his skates for 20 games and got six helpers. In 2016-17, Bredo played 44 games and scored the same amount of goals but tripled his assists, getting 27 for 30 points. He also racked up a whopping 140 penalty minutes, 113 more than the previous season. He also played two games for the Merritt Centennials. This season Bredo has only appeared for the Wranglers twice, scoring one goal.

Kolten Carpenter played 46 games for the Wranglers during their winning season, notching three goals and eight assists. In the playoffs, he played in 20 games and two assists. The next season, he joined the Kelowna Chiefs playing 39 games and scoring a total of 12 points. He started the current season with Kelowna, playing five games and scoring four points before being traded to the Wranglers. Since then, Carpenter has appeared in 10 games and scored nine points and will likely see his best year in the KIJHL, already tying his season best in points from last year (12).

Liam Cumberbirch played 35 for the Wranglers in 2015-16 before moving on to the Grandview Steelers of the Pacific Junior Hockey League. Cumberbirch scored seven goals and eight helpers but left for Grandview before the Wranglers got to the playoffs. The left-shooting defender scored three goals and 17 assists in his first full season with the Steelers and is now playing with Vancouver Island University Mariners.

Jayden Gilding wore the “A” when the Wranglers hoisted the Cyclone Taylor Cup, appearing in 50 games, scoring four goals and six assists. During the playoffs, he appeared in 20 games and scored one goal and four assists. Gilding would suit up for a third season with the Wranglers but it would also be his last, only appearing in 12 games but matching his point total from the previous year. Currently, he is the assistant coach for the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds of the British Columbia Major Midget League.

Nick Nordstrom, currently with Osoyoos Coyotees, only played two games during the regular season in 2015-16 and three games during the playoffs. He would go on to play 38 games for the Wranglers the next season and scored a total of 14 points. He started the current season but was traded to the Coyotees early on in the season.

The 2015-16 was Josh Odelein’s last season before aging out of junior hockey. He appeared for the Wranglers in 18 regular-season games and seven during the playoffs. It is currently unknown if Odelein is still playing hockey.

Tate Page played over 101 games in the KIJHL, all of them for the Wranglers. In 2015-16, his second and final season with the team, he played 49 games in the regular season and 20 in the playoffs. Scoring three goals and seven assists during the regular season, his statistical highlight would be his penalty minutes, which sits at 150. He is now in his second year with the Kindersley Klippers.

The last blue-liner to play for the Wranglers during the 2016-17 season was Tavis Roch. Roch played 41 games and would score four goals and 11 helpers for a 15 point total, one more than his previous season with the Wranglers, despite playing seven fewer games. After the winning season, Roch left for the OCN Blizzard in the Manitoba Junior Hockey league, playing 59 games his first season and tallying 29 total points. This season, he’s played nine games and added eight more points to his Manitoba Junior Hockey league career totals but has found himself in some trouble after being suspended for eight games on Nov. 9.
