Karson Kuhlman will take Chris Wagner’s place on the fourth line and Steven Kampfer is set on the third defensive pairing. Both last played on February 28. It will be Kuhlman’s fourth appearance this season and Kampfer’s second game.
After missing last game because he was on the Covid protocols list, Jake DeBrusk is also back in the lineup.
