Just Notes
- just a couple of changes from Friday's lineup in Cranbrook, with Spencer Galbraith replaced Eric Roy on the backend and Corbin Boes getting the start in goal instead of Liam Liston.

- In addition to Roy, Brandon scratches include D Ryley Miller (jaw), F David Toews (ankle), F Jens Meilleur (hand)and F Jon Gaudet.

- Saturday's game in the final one of a seven-game road trip for Brandon, and the Wheat Kings could finish .500 on the trip with a victory. After Saturday, Brandon plays seven of their next nine games on home ice starting with Friday's game versus Spokane.

- Lethbridge star goaltender Brandon Anderson missed the 'Canes game against Vancouver Wednesday because of illness and will back up starter Dylan Tait tonight.

- Morden product Michael Sofillas is the lone Manitoban on the Lethbridge roster. The rookie has two assists in 13 games so far this season.

- Second-year Hurricanes defenceman Reid Jackson is the son of former Wheat Kings' GM and coach Les Jackson. Les in currently the Director of Player Development and Scouting for the NHL's Dallas Stars, and is in attendance at tonight's game.
