Notes
- Brandon scratches are D Brodie Melnychuk (wrist), D Jordan Fransoo (Ottawa, NHL), F Brenden Walker (concussion), F Jason Swyripa (head), F Mark Stone (Ottawa, NHL), F Michael Ferland (Calgary, NHL) and D Colton Waltz (healthy).

- Regina Pats' F Mikael Jung was suspended for four games by the WHL on Friday for the checking to the head major he got during Wednesday's contest in Regina. Jung will sit out tonight and the first three games of the regular season.

- The Pats and Wheat Kings both provided their lines and defence combinations on the game lineup sheet for tonight. Thank-you!

- Brandon product Cody Nelson, 17, of the Spokane Chiefs is leading the WHL in majors during the pre-season with three.

- isn't it interesting the WHL still tracks Major Penalties in its statistics after unveiling the 7-point plan to reduce head injuries and concussions.

- Speaking of the 7-point plan, I spoke with WHL Commissioner Ron Robison earlier today about the plan. That interview will be played during the second intermission of tonight's broadcast on CKLQ.
