Just Notes
- D Eric Roy (concussion) skated today. Roy misses his fifth straight game tonight, but could return to the lineup later this week.

- D Ryley Miller (jaw, concussion) misses his second straight game while Brandon's other scratches are F Michael Ferland (knee, 1-2 weeks), F David Toews (ankle, 1-3 weeks), F Jens Meilleur (hand, 1 week) and F Jon Gaudet (healthy).

- the jersey has arrived! Hampus Gustafsson wears his coveted #13 tonight, becoming the first Wheat Kings (I believe) to wear #13 since Cory Cyrenne from 1995-1998.

- the Wheat Kings have led for a grand total of 11:41 in the last six games, and a total 45:58 during their nine-game losing streak. Getting out to a lead has never been more important.

- the Rockets will have 20-year old F Geordie Wudrick back in the lineup tonight after he was a healthy scratch for their last game on Friday night.

- Winnipeg product Zach Franko is the lone Manitoban on the Kelowna roster. Franko has three goals and 10 points in 11 games so far this season.
