He might actually be playing, at least per this Sportsnet preview of the game from today. Kosmachuk isn't listed amongst their suspended players and instead they have this to say about him...

Both teams will be fighting through adversity in the form of injuries and suspension. The Generals will be without forward Lucas Lessio (surgery) and Scott Laughton (suspension) while the Storm will forge ahead without forwards Hunter Garlent (broken ankle) and Patrick Watling (broken hand) and defenceman Andrey Pedan (suspension). "Every team goes through it and you can’t sit there and dwell on it," Smith said. "Players that would never have had a chance to play these minutes are getting chances so it will only make our team stronger later."

One player the Storm will look towards for an increased role is Winnipeg Jets prospect Scott Kosmachuk. "He understands how good he can be," Walker said. "When he plays with speed, he’s probably one of the fastest in the league and one of the best shots around. When he uses his abilities, he’s hard to beat and hard to stop."
