The Tigers are going with Joe Howe in goal tonight, so that means junior Josh Thorimbert is likely to start Saturday’s game. Colorado College has a few changes from their last game. On the third line, freshman Hunter Fejes is in the lineup replacing Scott Wamsganz at left wing. On the fourth line, freshman Peter Maric replaces Michael Morin at left wing. With defenseman Aaron Harstad out with an upper body injury, senior Joe Marciano will be Eamonn McDermott’s defensive partner. Freshman Michael King will play his third game and be paired with Ian Young on the third defensive pairing.
The Tigers will have three Minnesotans in the lineup in Howe (Plymouth), junior left wing Archie Skalbeck (Hopkins) and sophomore right wing Charlie Taft (Edina).
Colorado College will have three NHL draft picks in its lineup tonight in senior center Scott Winkler (Dallas), Fejes (Phoenix) and sophomore defenseman Peter Stoykewych (Winnipeg).
Colorado College is 1-5-2 in its last 8 games, but the opponents have been Minnesota, North Dakota, Yale, New Hampshire and Denver.
