Charlie Effinger's grandmother has passed away and he has gone home for the funeral and will return later in the week. Marco Cousineau is flying from Norfolk to Cincinnati to start tomorrow's game and IPFW goaltender Larkin Saalfrank will be the emergency back-up.
Mike Hoban will not be ready to go this week yet. Brent Henley has not heard of any further suspension from the league so he's clear to play. Colin Chaulk skated again today in practice but is not ready to play yet.
