Steve Tresierra will play tonight as the Centennials face the Vipers in Vernon. I would imagine it'll be pretty weird for Tresierra to cross the hall and play against the guys who were his teammates just yesterday.
Watch for some of the Cents to take a couple of extra shots at new Viper Cam Brodie too, as of course the 20-year-old was a Centennial earlier this season prior to being traded to Burnaby. We could tout the game as a battle between Brodie and Jordan Soquila as both were traded for each other in October. The other players in that deal, Alex Valenti, and Dylan Herold aren't involved in tonight's game. Valenti was traded to North Bay while Herold is still with the Express.
The Centennials have added four 20-year-old affiliate players to their roster although it's unknown if they'll play tonight as their KIJHL teams are also in action. Jose Reyes, David Gore, and Mick Ludvig are with the Kamloops Storm while Spencer Brooks is playing with the Princeton Posse. Brooks played with Quesnel as an AP for four games last season. Kamloops This Week is reporting that Scott Kirkham, who has already played seven games as an AP with the Cents this season, has joined them this weekend.
