Notes
- The Wheat Kings are out to break a four-game losing streak tonight while the Blades are seeking a sixth consecutive victory.

- Brandon scratches D Eric Roy (shoulder?), G Corbin Boes (hand) and F Tyrel Seaman (concussion). Seaman was sent home to Choiceland last week but will be attendance at tonight's game.

- Rene Hunter returns after missing two games with an upper body injury, while Paul Ciarelli could return. He has also missed the last two games with an upper body injury.

- The Wheat Kings have flip-flopped centres on their top two lines, with Kevin Sundher now between Stone and Ferland while Walker is between Bertaggia and Dziurzynski. Bertaggia and Dziurzynski have combined for 0 points during Brandon's four-game losing streak.

- Unusual fact - Michael Ferland and Darian Dziurzynski have combined for 0 fights since the end of November.

- Saskatoon is rolling along with Lukas Sutter leading the way. The son of Rich Sutter is on a four-game goal streak and has 10 goals and 16 points in the last nine games for the Blades.

- Saskatoon will be without defenceman Duncan Siemens tonight. The first round pick of the Colorado Avalanche will sit for a violation of Team Rules.
