Minnesota vs. Niagara Line Combinations

With Nick Bjugstad and Kyle Rau in Alberta playing in the under-20 World Junior Championships, Minnesota head coach Don Lucia has some holes to fill this weekend. With that, Nico Sacchetti and Joe Miller get another chance to play. Bjugstad and Rau's linemate, Zach Budish, finds himself playing with Nick Larson and Christian Isackson, who suits up in place of Travis Boyd.

In addition, Jake Parenteau returns to the lineup after being scratched in favor of Blake Thompson in the Gophers' previous game. As usual, Kent Patterson is between the pipes for Minnesota while Cody Campbell gets the nod for the Purple Eagles.
