Just Notes
- The Wheat Kings will dress 21 skaters for warmup, with defenceman Brodie Melnychuk (ankle) a game-time decision. If Melnychuk plays, either Dakota Conroy or Jens Meilleur will be the odd man out.

- F Dominick Favreau (ribs) and F Paul Ciarelli (charleyhorse) did not make the trip West with the Wheat Kings and are scratched tonight.

- The Wheat Kings are looking for their first road victory since the Christmas break, having gone 0-4-0-2 in six road games since December 25th. The club's overall road record of 6-16-1-3 is the worst in the WHL (.308 winning percentage).

- Brandon enters play tonight three points behind Prince Albert for eighth-place in the Eastern Conference. The Raiders are idle tonight before hosting Medicine Hat tomorrow.

- The Hurricanes will give Dylan Tait his second straight start in goal tonight after he played well in Lethbridge's overtime win in Regina on Saturday. It's Tait's 19th appearance of the season.

- Lethbridge is honouring the 1951 World Champion Lethbridge Maple Leafs tonight by wearing the replica jersey's of the team. The jersey's will be auctioned off this week, with proceeds going to the Hurricanes' Onside Committee.
