Boyle, Vasaturo will be on Union defense tonight against Cornell
Tom Boyle and Charlie Vasaturo will be a defensive pair as 17th-ranked Union faces No. 16 Cornell tonight at 7 at Messa Rink.
Neither players was in the lineup last weekend at Princeton and Quinnipiac. Senior defenseman Shawn Stuart is out with an upper-body injury, and fellow senior D-man Ryan Forgaard is a healthy scratch.
Otherwise, the forward lines remain the same, with the exception of Matt Hatch and Kevin Sullivan switching sides on the third line.
Here is the Union lineup, starting with the forwards (LW-C-RW):
Daniel Ciampini/Kyle Bodie/Wayne Simpson
Matt Wilkins/Max Novak/Daniel Carr
Matt Hatch/Josh Jooris/Kevin Sullivan
Cole Ikkala/David Roy/Sam Coatta
The defensive pairings are:
Greg Coburn/Shayne Gostisbehere
Mat Bodie/Sebastien Gingras
Charlie Vasaturo/Tim Boyle
Troy Grosenick starts in goal.
I'll have more on the contest later in my pregame report.
