Just Notes
- Ayrton Nikkel will make his Wheat Kings' debut tonight. The 15-year old prospect has been practicing with Brandon this week. He played one game with Saskatoon earlier this season in his hometown of Kelowna.

- Corbin Boes makes his third straight in goal for Brandon. Boes is coming off a 40-save effort on Wednesday against Kootenay for his first career shutout.

- Matt MacKay (18 Games) and Mark Stone (15 Games) will both try to extend their point-scoring streak tonight. MacKay's streak is the second longest in the WHL this season.

- Brandon's magic # to clinch a playoff spot is four. The Wheat Kings enter play tonight on point behind sixth-place Edmonton in the Eastern Conference. The Oil Kings host Medicine Hat tonight.
