- Brandon Anderson gets the start in the Wheat Kings' net, making the second straight time a netminder acquired in trade makes their Brandon debut at the ShoWare Centre. Two years ago, Jacob De Serres debuted for BRandon in a 4-1 victory over the Thunderbirds, making 28 saves.

- Jack Palmer, 16, make his WHL debut for Brandon. The son of former NHLer Brad Palmer was an eighth round pick in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft.

- Calvin Pickard gets a rare night off as Seattle gives Daniel Cotton, 17, his first career WHL start in goal. Pickard had started all six games for the T-Birds this season after playing 68 of 72 games a year ago.

- Former Wheat King Brendan Rouse, 19, has two assists in six games this season after tallying 11 goals and 29 points in 72 games for the T-Birds last season. Rouse was dealt to Seattle for De Serres back in October of 2009.

- Seattle has won three in a row after an 0-and-3 start under 1st-year head coach Steve Konowalchuk. That includes a 4-2 victory over the Saskatoon Blades on Saturday night, a game that saw Burke Gallimore and Marcel Noebels score a pair of goals each.

- Seattle's goaltender coach is Dusty Imoo, whom Brandon assistant coach Dwayne Gylywoychuk scored his first WHL goal against back in 1989 when Gylywoychuk was a 16-year old rookie with the Wheat Kings and Imoo was with the Lethbridge Hurricanes.
