Game #8 - Wheat Kings vs Everett (October 12, 2012)

35. Curtis Honey
1. Corbin Boes

3. Tyler Yaworski - 2. Ryan Pulock
32. Ryley Miller - 7. Eric Roy
6. Ayrton Nikkel - 9. Rene Hunter

13. Alessio Bertaggia - 29. Nick Buonassisi - 14. Jason Swyripa
15. Jack Palmer - 21. Tyrel Seaman - 18. Richard Nejezchleb
26. Geordie Maguire - 23. Tim McGauley - 8. Jayce Hawryluk
19. Taylor Cooper - 17. John Quenneville - 24. Jens Meilleur

- Brandon scratches tonight include F Daniel Asham (illness), D Colton Waltz (healthy), D Riley Van Horne (healthy), F Kord Pankewicz (healthy) and F Quintin Lisoway (healthy).

- 3rd-year Brandon F Jens Meilleur is still feeling the affects of illness but will play tonight, but likely not as much as he usually might. He'll begin the game on the Wheat Kings' fourth line.

- Curtis Honey gets his second start of the season and his first on home ice this year. In fact, Honey has made just one previous start on home ice.  He stopped 46 of 49 shots in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Victoria Royals on January 14, 2012.

- Everett features just one Manitoban in goaltender Austin Lotz, and the St. Adolphe product is out of the lineup tonight because of a lower body injury.

- Wheat Kings' rookie Geordie Maguire was originally a fifth round pick of Everett in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft but never played for the Silvertips despite attending training camp in 2010 and 2011.  The Wheat Kings acquired him from Everett in late July for either a fifth round pick in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft or goaltender Brandon Anderson.  Anderson is still with Washington's ECHL farm team, the Reading Royals.

- Brandon has scored four goals in the last three games going into tonight's game while Everett has scored just 17 goals in seven games this season, going 1-5-0-1.  We might see a low-scoring affair tonight.
