Late Line-up Changes

The Canucks are going to bring in a bit more size and experience to their roster tonight in San Jose.

Matt Pettinger will be in the line-up to play along side Rick Rypien and Mike Brown. Pettinger replaces P.C. Labrie as the LW on that line.

Both Shaun Heshka and Daniel Rahimi will get the night off as Zack FitzGerald enters the roster. FitzGerald makes his pre-season debut tonight and don't surprised to see him drop the gloves. He compiled 158 PIM in 48 games with the Manitoba Moose last season.

San Jose is making one significant change up front as former 1st round draft pick Logan Couture will draw into the line-up for his 3rd game of the pre-season. The 19 year-old put up 21 goals and 37 assists last year in the OHL with the Ottawa 67's.
