Ontario Reign Lines
- Jonny Brodzinski gets the first opportunity to replace just called-up Michael Mersch. It'll be a tall order to replace the dominant Mersch, but Brodzinski, who netted his first professional goal last weekend has a tantalizing release and shot. (Update: Actually, Kempe lined up at LW next to Dowd and Brodzinski)
- Also, Joel Lowry goes in for Ryan Horvat. We heard no word of injury, so perhaps it was because of Horvat's two OZ penalties last night.
San Jose Barracuda Lines
(based on last game)
11 Lerg - 21 Smith - 86 Langlois
89 Goodrow - 38 Haley - 55 Emanuelsson
53 Jevpalovs - 17 McCarthy - 82 Goldobin
54 Hanson - 84 Parkes - 72 Doremus
3 Stollery - 41 Mueller
47 Ryan - 70 Young
45 Cundari - 63 Bergman
- The Sharks just sent Ryan Carpenter back to the Barracuda. The AHL team's leading scorer, Carpenter is sure to draw in this afternoon.
- Latest update has McLaren, Hanson, Bergman, and Timmins out, so last night's shutout loss to San Diego will definitely affect today's lineup.
Bakersfield Condors Lines
- The Oilers just buried one contract in Bakersfield, only to dig another up. Mark Fayne returns to the AHL for the first time since 2010-11, while Nikita Nikitin rises from the Rabobank.
- Since well-regarded goaltending prospect Laurent Brossoit is out for about a week, the Condors called up Ty Rimmer from the ECHL to take his place. Ex-King Ben Scrivens shut out San Diego on Friday; will Bakersfield test the mostly struggling netminder in a back-to-back against Ontario?
