After a tough and sobering loss against the Edmonton Oil Kings last night, the Broncos are right back at it against a very skilled Brandon Wheat Kings squad. Brandon is undefeated so far this season and as dangerous a team as there is in the conference. This will be another big test for Swift Current as we see if they can bounce back from a turnover laden effort last night. Dillon Heatherington is back from NHL camp tonight and the Broncos also welcome Andrew Johnson back to the lineup for the first time since pre-season play. The overage situation has kept him out in favour of veteran defenceman Stepehn Shmoorkoff. Tonight Johnson reunites with Zac Mackay and Tanner LeSann in an attempt to re-create the success they had as a checking line last season.
Scratches: Honka (NHL), Shmoorkoff, Cole Johnson (inj), Leone, Bevan
WHEAT KINGS LINEUP
Scratches: Taraschuk, Roy, Lewis, Kapsick, Nejezchleb (NHL), Lycar, Campbell, Matsuba, Mylcreest
Tonight’s game is live on The Eagle 94.1 FM at 6:30pm. It’s the final Broncos home game before a five game BC Division road swing.
