COLORADO COLLEGE (5-4-1, 8-8-2)

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.

About Mick Hatten

I cover St. Cloud State hockey and I am a general assignment reporter for the sports department at the Times. 2012-13 was my third season covering the Huskies hockey programs. My wife Kristin and I have two boys (Luke, 5, and Josh, 3) and we live in St. Cloud. I have had two stints working at the Times. I worked here from 1986-91 as a part-time sports reporter and intern. I have been back since Aug. 1999. I spent one year as the prep sports coordinator, six years as the St. Cloud State reporter (football, men's and women's basketball and everything else but hockey) and spent four years as the Citizen Times editor. The last two years, I was also the editor of the Rocori Times and Sauk Rapids-Rice Times sections, which are mailed directly to people in those two school districts. Follow me on Twitter at https://twitter.com/MickHatten or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/sctimesmick. I do online chats about college hockey during the season from 1-2 p.m. Thursdays at www.sctimes.com.
