Las Vegas – Top goalie Big Ben Giesbrecht will be in the net tonight for UNLV’s second game vs a hard working Colorado State at City National Arena. Giesbrecht was ultra-strong with his unique calm, effective method of shutting down the Rebels net in a 4-0 win over Colorado State on Friday evening.

UNLV goal scorer Bryce Woodward will get a start on the top line. He replaces Tristan Mayer who took a hard hit in game one of this series.

UNLV, ranked 7th in ACHA D1, is 17-4-1 overall. The Rebels are 10-0-0 on home ice outscoring teams 52-15.

Colorado State is ranked #23. They are a hard-working club which firefights right to the end of a game – no matter what the score.
