Minnesota is sticking with a few exceptions the lineup the Gophers used in Saturday's exhibition.

Sam Warning, who missed Saturday's exhibition, returns on the top line. Hudson Fasching moves from the left to right wing and Vinni Lettieri goes to the third line right wing. Defensively, Michael Brodzinski moves to a pairing with Ben Marshall while Mike Reilly is paired with Jake Parenteau.

Adam Wilcox is expected to start for Minnesota, with Jordan Tibbett expected for Mercyhurst.

Scratches for the Gophers include Ryan and Connor Reilly (who received a game misconduct in the Lethbridge game), Jake Bischoff and Christian Horn. Gabe Guertler currently is suspended.

Lines for both teams are below.
