Jooris in Union lineup; Stuart still out
Center Josh Jooris will play, but defenseman Shawn Stuart won't when Union faces RPI in the inaugural Mayor's Cup game tonight at 7:30 at the Times Union Center.
Jooris suffered an upper-body injury in the third period of last Saturday's game against Colgate. He was kept out of Tuesday's game against Harvard.
Stuart will miss his fourth straight contest with an upper-body injury. He was hit in the first period of the Quinnipiac game two weeks ago.
Daniel Ciampini returns to the forward line with Kyle Bodie and Wayne Simpson.
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/Nick Cruice
The defensive pairings are:
Greg Coburn/Shayne Gostisbehere
Mat Bodie/Sebastien Gingras
Ryan Forgaard/Tim Boyle
Troy Grosenick starts in goal.
I'll have more on the game later in my pregame report.
