Some teams roll three lines and use the fourth line sparingly. Ott will take a lot of defensive zone draws because of his face-off ability and Barnaby will play several shifts on a scoring line, as he did periodically throughout his career. The third fourth liner on this squad, Lowry, is a penalty killer who also will be on the ice for many defensive zone starts to check opposing wingers. So, basically, for the Minutemen, it's a utility fourth line that will play together maybe 5-7 minutes per game, if that.
