- Brandon goaltender Corbin Boes suffered a lower body injury during Friday's game in Red Deer and will be out of the Wheat Kings' lineup tonight.  Brandon has recalled Jordan Papirny, 16, to serve as Curtis Honey's backup.  Papirny is 12-3-4 with a 2.53 GAA and .918 SPCT for the SSAC Boston Pizza Athletics of the AMHL this season.

- Tyrel Seaman (concussion, out for season), Richard Nejezchleb (hand/thumb, four weeks) and D Kord Pankewicz (healthy) are also scratched for the Wheat Kings tonight.

- Chad Robinson had a goal and an assist in Friday's game and now has eight points (4 G, 4 A) in ten games this month.  He leads the Wheat Kings in scoring in January.

- Brandon went 3-for-3 on the penalty-kill in Friday's win in Red Deer and are 9-for-9 over the last three games, marking the first time this season the Wheat Kings have gone three consecutive games without surrendering a power-play goal against.

- The Wheat Kings' last victory in Edmonton came on December 31, 2009.  Jesse Sinatynski had a hat-trick in Brandon's 6-2 victory that night.  Brandon is 0-7-0-0 at Rexall Place including two losses in the second round of the WHL playoffs last spring.
