News & Notes from morning skate
Per #CBJ HC Brad Larsen:— Coby Maeir (@CobyMaeir) November 15, 2022
- Kent Johnson, Erik Gudbranson and Sean Kuraly are back in the lineup tonight.
- Jack Roslovic and Gavin Bayreuther are healthy scratches.
-Elvis Merzlikins starts in net.
Larsen didn't say what he talked to Roslovic about, but his message was received.
"I think he's crystal clear as to why he's out," Larsen said. "And when he gets back in he's gonna have to fight to stay back in. There's a better version of him. And I know that. I've seen it."
If Monday's practice was any indication, here are the projected lines for tonight's contest:

Hockey Fights Cancer Night
The Blue Jackets are presenting Hockey Fights Cancer night at tonight's game.
"I've had my couple bouts within different capacities and been very fortunate, very blessed in the outcome," Larsen said. "But it's about others, right? It's about supporting them. Gosh, it's some people are in a much different tougher circumstance than others. Anytime we can bring attention to it the right way and support people. It's a fantastic night."
Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN+/Hulu and 97.1 FM The Fan.
