THE REGULARS:

Jori Lehtera remains on the sidelines with a knee injury; the Finnish center has not skated for Sibir since Nov. 5, but is expected to be back in the lineup shortly.

Lehtera's Sibir teammate, Vladimir Tarasenko, is still struggling offensively with Lehtera out of the lineup. Tarasenko managed only one goal in two games this past week, and has slipped under a point per game for the first time this year.

Meanwhile, out west, Colorado College sophomore Jaden Schwartz failed to score a goal in a weekend series with North Dakota (both one-goal losses), but chipped in offensively with five assists in the two games.
