The Canucks will be facing off with the Kings tonight and Rick Tocchet has confirmed his line-up changes heading into this one.

Akito Hirose will be making his NHL debut replacing Guillaume Brisebois in the line-up. There is no confirmation at this point revealing who he'll be skating with, but Brisebois skated by Tyler Myers' side on the team's last game.


Tocchet also confirmed that Thatcher Demko will be guarding the cage which marks his 13th start since he came back from his injury. Collin Delia is expected to ride the pine a lot more in the team's last stretch.



As Hirose gives his first stride with the Canucks, it'll be interesting to see in live action what he can bring on the long term.
