Notes
- Brandon scratches tonight are D Colton Waltz (personal), F Richard Nejezchleb (shoulder), F Jens Meilleur (lower body) and F Kord Pankewicz (healthy).

- The Wheat Kings are out to break a three-game losing streak and move back to the .500 mark with a victory tonight.  Last night's 5-3 loss to the Ice dropped the team to 9-10-2-1 on the season -- the first time this year they've been below .500 this year.

- Brandon has been outscored 33-20 in the first period in their 22 games so far this season, and have led after 20 minutes just five times this year.  The first period has been an issue for much of the season and gets magnified when the team falls behind on the road.

- F Alessio Bertaggia takes a six-game point streak (4 G, 5 A) and four-game goal streak into tonight's contest; D Ryan Pulock is on a five-game point streak (2 G, 4 A) and F Jayce Hawryluk has scored in three straight games.

- Curtis Honey starts in goal for the Wheat Kings' tonight. Honey has stopped 132 of 141 shots in his last four appearances for a 2.47 GAA and .916 SPCT in that span.
