- Brandon's scratches tonight are D Riley Van Horne (healthy), F Jason Swyripa (wrist, 6-8 weeks), F Richard Nejezchleb (shoulder, day-to-day) and F Geordie Maguire.

- This is the Wheat Kings' first game in Victoria since October of 1993, the year before the Cougars moved to Prince George.  The club having missed out on visiting the Royals during their first season in the B.C. Capital in 2011-2012. 

- Minnedosa product Chad Robinson will make his Wheat Kings' debut tonight.  Robinson was acquired from Red Deer on Monday for a conditional 7th round pick in the 2014 Bantam Draft.  He'll wear #20.

- 20-year old F Nick Buonassisi got off to a great start to the season but has been struggling offensively as of late, going pointless in the last five games and being -7 over that span.  He'll move to the wing tonight on a line with Robinson and Victoria product Jack Palmer.

- The Royals are off to an 8-4-0-0 start to their season, with five of their eight victories being come-from-behind wins.  Victoria named D Tyler Stahl their captain yesterday but the 20-year old won't play tonight because of a suspected concussion. Interesting since he isn't listed on this week's WHL Injury Report.
