After a sterling professional debut. Montreal Canadiens prospect Cole Caufield will look to continue his production on Saturday afternoon when the Laval Rocket play the Toronto Marlies at Coca Cola Coliseum.

Jan Myšàk has been out with an injury and skated with the team in their pre-game skate on Friday. He made the trip but is not expected to be back in the lineup on Saturday. Arsen Khisamutdinov is also sitting out.

Vasily Demchenko will be making his second career AHL start. The Russian goaltender’s last game action came February 22, when he allowed three goals on 25 shots against the Manitoba Moose. The Rocket lost that game in overtime.

Laval is 2-1-0 against the Marlies this season after their win on Friday night. They are in the second game of a four-game stretch against the Marlies. They will play Toronto April 15 and 18 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Alex Belzile, Jesse Ylönen, Brandon Baddock, Lukas Vejdemo, and Cale Fleury are all injured and did not make the trip to Toronto.
