Greetings from the Verizon Wireless Center in downtown Mankato. Minnesota State will take on Alberta at 5:07 p.m. I'll be posting updates on Twitter today. Hoping to have some live stuff on the website, too, but there are some problems with that currently.
Since it's an exhibition, MSU can dress all of its players. Two players, however are out: junior forward Dylan Margonari, who will miss some time early in the season with a stress fracture in his leg. Freshman defenseman Alex Vanko is to, too, although I believe he did participate this week.
Here are the Mavericks' lines:
15-Franklin, 23-Blueger, 9-Gervais
24-Knowles, 17-Huntebrinker, 19-McClure
25-Stepan, 16-J. Nelson, 10-Knutson
7-Cooper, 27-Schwalbe, 14-Mullin
28-Jutzi, 6-C. Nelson
