Everett vs. Victoria: lineup notes

EVERETT

Forward lines:
Harrison-Bauml-Petryk
Winquist-Hayer?-Oslanski
Soumelidis-Mappin-Sandhu
Skapski-Stadnyk-Aasman
Low?

Defensive pairings:
Nikkel-Mueller
MacDonald-Cox
Betker-Adam

Starting goalie:
Lotz

Scratches: Zipp, Leedahl, Grayson, Murray, Hayer/Low.

Notes: It's the first game of the post-Mark Ferner era, and interim coach Garry Davidson only makes minor tweaks to the line combinations. New defenseman Ayrton Nikkel, acquired at Thursday's trade deadline in exchange for defenseman Nick Walters, makes his Everett debut. He plays alongside Mirco Mueller, who's back after representing Switzerland at the World Junior Hockey Championships. Also back from international duty are forwards Tyler Sandhu and Ty Mappin, who played for Team Pacific at the U-17 World Hockey Challenge. Center Manraj Hayer (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision, with Brayden Low stepping in if Hayer can't go. Forwards Dawson Leedahl (knee) and Lucas Grayson (lower body) are out injured, while defenseman Ryan Murray (shoulder) remains on the roster despite being out for the season.

VICTORIA

Forward lines:
Deacon-Crunk-Traber
Gogolev-Magee-Lofthouse
Crooks-Hodges-Carroll
J.Walker-Fisher-Fushimi

Defensive pairings:
Cote-Gagnon
Hicketts-Fransoo
Kanzig-Dixon

Starting goalie:
Polivka

Scratches: Stahl, B.Walker, Nelson, Harrison.

Notes: Victoria is without two of its top offensive performers, center Logan Nelson (lower body) and right wing Ben Walker (upper body), because of injury. Winger Luke Harrison (upper body) is also out. Winger Trent Lofthouse makes his first return to Comcast Arena after being traded from Everett to Victoria last week.
