Coming back from the winter break, the Cougars have added 5 new players to the team. It is expected that all 5 players will see some ice time tonight, listen as defensivemen Cam Hymas and Jared Gantt, forwards CJ Coslett, Ben Gantt, and Ashton Shumbashi all make their season debut for BYU tonight.
The Cougars will be short a couple players tonight as Nick Bartholomew is out with an injury and is expected to return in the coming weeks. Blake Dorton has fractured his wrist and is out for the season, fans will be able to see him on the ice next year.
The visiting Aggies have a playmaking threat in forward Cooper Limb, who has tallied 10 assists on the Cougars over the previous 3 meetings. Limb leads Utah State in points this season with 29 (11 goals, 18 assists). Limb takes on a lot of long shifts and once again, will be key for the Aggies. Limb has frequently found forward Chris Videto, who has netted 4 goals against the Cougars. Defensivemen Shaun Gibbons has added pop from the point with a goal in each of the 3 meetings.
Thursday, January 8, at 7:00 PM the Cougars will be on the prowl as they face off against the Utah State in a rivalry matchup. Tickets to the game are $6.00 or $3.00 with a student ID.
