Stone Set to Play Wednesday

After it was originally expected that Mark Stone would miss Wednesday's home game against Saskatoon for some R & R at home in Winnipeg, the Wheat Kings announced late Tuesday that their captain would be in the lineup for the start of their three-game home stand.

It'll be Stone's first appearance before the home crowd since returning from the 2012 World Junior Hockey Championship with a bronze medal.

Alessio Bertaggia and Ayrton Nikkel was also be playing at home for the first time since their International tournaments.

Bertaggia helped Switzerland to an 8th-place finish at the WJHC while Nikkel played with Team Pacific at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.

One player who won't be in action Wednesday is Tyrel Seaman, who missed practice again on Tuesday and continues to be sidelined by a suspected concussion.

The second-year centre has missed 13 of the last 14 games.
