- Mitch de Snoo, Chris Corbeil and Challen Rogers remain on the Injured Reserve List.
- The Toronto Rock can clinch a playoff spot with a win tonight. No help needed from anyone, it’s a win and you’re in situation for the Rock.
- The Rock are on the road next weekend at Albany. The Rock return home for the biggest game of the year on home floor against the Buffalo Bandits on Saturday, April 1.
