He plays alongside Mirco Mueller, who’s back after representing Switzerland at the World Junior Hockey Championships. Also back from international duty are forwards Tyler Sandhu and Ty Mappin, who played for Team Pacific at the U-17 World Hockey Challenge. Center Manraj Hayer (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision, with Brayden Low stepping in if Hayer can’t go. Forwards Dawson Leedahl (knee) and Lucas Grayson (lower body) are out injured, while defenseman Ryan Murray (shoulder) remains on the roster despite being out for the season.

Notes: Victoria is without two of its top offensive performers, center Logan Nelson (lower body) and right wing Ben Walker (upper body), because of injury.
