Gophers Hockey: Minnesota vs. Vermont 11/24 line combinations

Line combinations for Saturday's Minnesota-Vermont game. The Gophers make one change as Justin Holl comes in for Jared Larson.

After last night's 5-1 win over Vermont, Minnesota only makes a single change. Defenseman Justin Holl (Chicago Blackhawks) is in for Jared Larson as a fourth line forward. Larson was shaken up Friday when he was hit from behind but whether or not that is the reason (Larson has only played in 4 games this season) remains to be seen.

Vermont, on the other hand, has made a few changes. Michael Paliotta (Blackhawks) is out of the lineup after he and defensive partner Nick Bruneteau were on the ice for 4 of Minnesota's 5 goals. His spot is taken by Nick Luuko and Blake Doerring replaces Paliotta in the lineup. Meanwhile, Catamounts coach Kevin Snedden has made two further changes on the fourth line. Tobias Nilsson-Roos and Kyle Mountain are being replaced by Ben Albertson and Mike Montagna.

Adam Wilcox is expected to start for the Gophers in goal while Brady Hoffman gets the Vermont nod.
