Scratches: Walters, Winquist, Adam.
Notes: Everett welcomes winger Trent Lofthouse back to the lineup after missing one game with minor physical ailments. Defenseman Nick Walters serves the second game of his three-game suspension for his hit on Spokane’s Mitch Holmberg. Winger Joshua Winquist fell ill, so he misses his third straight game and forces the Tips to play with 11 forwards and seven defensemen. Defenseman Austin Adam remains a long-term casualty because of his broken hand.
Scratches: Thomson, Bell, Friesen, Macklin.
Notes: Kamloops is essentially at full strength. The only player listed on the Blazers injury report is 16-year-old winger Mitch Friesen, who has a lower-body injury.
