Salt Lake City, Utah – UNLV goalie Jesse Gordichuk of Penticton, Canada, gets the start again tonight for the 5-0-0 Rebels who close out a weekend series tonight against Utah University at the Salt Lake City Sports Complex.

UNLV won here last night 6-4.

“It was sloppy at times but we battled back and won the battles we needed to win on Friday night,” said UNLV’s head coach Anthony Greener. “Cody Williams and Kuzy (Joe Kaszupski) really stepped it up and on the back end Bas Assaf and Moose (Eric Williams) played very well. Moose has been unreal on the ice.

“Jesse Gordichuk was strong in the net in our first game here so he will go in Saturday night,” Greener said.

Utah, with new recruits, transfers and with faster team speed, is 2-1-1 overall.

Game time is 7:30 pm
