The Vancouver Canucks are set to take on the Seattle Kraken on Saturday night and head coach Rick Tocchet is making two notable changes to his lineup.

"#Canucks projected lineup Saturday vs. Seattle based on line rushes at the morning skate:

PDG-Miller-Boeser
Kuzmenko-Pettersson-Mikheyev
Joshua-Blueger-Garland
Höglander-Lafferty-Beauvillier

Hughes-Hronek
Hirose-Myers
Cole-Juulsen/Friedman"



Andrei Kuzmenko is set to return to the lineup after missing Thursday's game with a facial injury he sustained in Wednesday's game against the New York Islanders. Meanwhile, Pius Suter remains on the sidelines for Saturday night.

Additionally, it appears that Mark Friedman will play tonight. He was rotating on the third defensive pairing with Noah Juulsen, so we'll have to wait for line rushes in warmup before a decision is made.

Puck drop is set for 7 p.m. PT/10 p.m. ET at Rogers Arena and can be viewed nationally on Sportsnet on Hockey Night in Canada.
