Game 27 Pregame: Lineup and notes ahead of Merrimack's trip to UNH
DURHAM, N.H. — Merrimack is at the Whittemore Center to take on UNH for the first time this season. The Warriors are one man short of a full lineup. After losing Mac Welsher and Ethan Bono last night, the Warriors are dressing 11 forwards and seven defensemen.
Puck Drop: 7 p.m. ET
Location: Whittemore Center (Cap. 7,500)
Referees: Steven Rouillard, Jeremy Tufts
Linesmen: Derek Arnold, Steven Murray
— Brady Hunter is back in the lineup for the Warriors. The Warriors have just three centers listed on their chart. Hunter, Mark Hillier, and Matt Copponi will take those duties tonight. Last week when the Warriors dressed 11 forwards and eight defensemen, Merrimack coach Scott Borek deployed Christian Felton and Zach Bookman as centers on top of their defense duty.
— Hugo Ollas is the expected starter for the Warriors after he led the team out for pregame warmups. He'll be opposed by Jakob Hellsten, a North Dakota transfer who has a 2.00 GAA and a .910 save percentage in 15 games this season.
