Benik will sit out another series for SCSU
St. Cloud State freshman wing Joey Benik will sit out this weekend’s series against Colorado College. He has not played a game this season. Benik suffered a broken leg the first practice of the season. Earlier in the week, the Huskies were proceeding as if Benik would be in the lineup this weekend.
“He’s not been cleared yet,” Huskies coach Bob Motzko said.
Medical personnel have to clear players for contact and game action before they can play in games. The Huskies have next weekend off. The next possibility of Benik joining the lineup will be the nonconference series against RPI on Dec. 27-28 at the National Hockey and Event Center.
Here are the probable lines for the Huskies for Friday:
|11-Kalle Kossila||19-Drew LeBlanc||22-Jonny Brodzinski|
|10-Ben Hanowski||26-Nic Dowd||13-David Morley|
|27-Nick Oliver||8-Cory Thorson||21-Brooks Bertsch|
|18-Garrett Milan||16-Jimmy Murray||17-Joey Holka|
|28-Andrew Prochno||14-Nick Jensen||29-Ryan Faragher|
|7-Kevin Gravel||12-Ethan Prow||35-Rasmus Reijola|
|4-Taylor Johnson||40-Tim Daly||33-Joe Phillippi|
