It’s the final game of the regular season for the Ontario Reign and their first against the Henderson Silver Knights in the brand new Dollar Loan Center. The Reign have already locked up second place in the Pacific Division and a matchup against the San Diego Gulls.
More tomorrow in our Ontario Reign lineup article, but don't look for Byfield, Kupari, Vilardi, or Spence to be sent back to Ontario for AHL playoffs. They're staying up.
Turcotte is expected back tomorrow, as we reported last wk. Nousiainen too. Madden is close, just not tmrw.
