Gophers Athletics/Paul Rovnak

Line combinations for tonight's WCHA opener between the University of Minnesota and Michigan Tech.

After last weekend's dominating sweep of Michigan State, the University of Minnesota begins their final WCHA campaign up in Houghton, Michigan. Tonight's lineup is similar to last Saturday's in which Gopher head coach Don Lucia - looking for his 600th win - is playing 11 forwards and 7 defensemen (Justin Holl is the extra defenseman tonight). Everyone returns from Saturday except for Adam Wilcox; Michael Shibrowski makes his second start.
