Nerd numbers alert: Ooh, the suspense around Lafranchise-MacKenzie

Doyle Woody,Adn Staff

If anyone cares -- and evidently, some do, though why is something of a puzzlement -- Alaska Aces defenseman Kane Lafranchise will wear No. 6 tonight in Game 3 against Stockton. Drew MacKenzie, who wears No. 4, the number Lafranchise wore for several seasons before spending most of this season in the AHL, will continue with that digit on his sweater.

Also, winger Peter Sivak (upper-body injury) is out again. He must be since he was placed on reserve today.
