Just Notes
- After being hit the mouth by a puck in the first period last night, Brodie Melnychuk will not play in tonight's contest versus the Broncos. Melnychuk is joined on the sidelines tonight by F Dominick Favreau (ribs) and F Paul Ciarelli (charleyhorse). That means the Wheat Kings will dress one under the maximum or 17 skaters for tonight's contest.

- Ryan Pulock, who logged more than 28 minutes of icetime in last night's win over Lethbridge, has one goal and six points in seven games this month.

- Brandon is looking for back-to-back wins for the first since putting together a three-game winning streak from Nov.11-15. The victory over Regina in the last game of the streak pushed the team to .500 at that time (11-11-0-1). They are 4-14-1-6 since.

- Winkler product Mark Friesen will get the night off for Swift Current, with Austin Smith getting the start in goal for the Broncos. With Cody Eakin in Kootenay, Friesen is the only Manitoban on the Swift Current roster. It's a rare breather for Friesen. He's appeared in 47 of the Broncos 50 games this season.
