Texas suits up against Ontario for the first time this season tonight. Texas and the Reign have both been having decent success over the last stint of games. Texas is 7-1 over their last eight while Ontario is 5-3 over the same span. The difference in the records is heavily biased toward how each team started the season. While Texas came out of the gate with three wins, Ontario nearly exited the month of October without a W, a span of six regulation losses to start the year. Since that point, they are 9-3-0-1.

Up front, Michael Mersch still leads the way. The former AHL Rookie of the Year leads in both goals and points (7-9=16). Rookie Matt Luff is dangerous on the wing with 4-8=12. Another notable includes recent addition Jordan Subban, brother to P.K. and Malcolm, who was just traded from Vancouver. He has 16 games under his belt in Utica but tonight's could be his first in the Kings org.
Texas is having a fantastic run itself right now and gets to add Curtis McKenzie back to the lineup tonight. Coach Laxdal indicated that would shuffle the lines a bit, putting Brian Flynn back on a line with Roope Hintz and Denis Gurianov.

Isn't this Jack's first trip back to Cedar Park since getting traded? He and Budaj were with the Kings when Quick got hurt in the season opener last season.ReplyDelete
