Scratches: Zipp, Skrumeda, MacDonald, Skapski, Penner.
Notes: This is Everett’s first game since winger Reid Petryk was traded, so the Tips no longer have to make a decision on which overager to scratch. Logan Aasman steps into Petryk’s spot on the right wing alongside Kohl Bauml and Dawson Leedahl. Winger Matt Fonteyne makes his season debut as the Tips dress all four of their 16-year-olds. Daniel Cotton gets his second straight start in goal.
Scratches: Wheaton, Rigby, Glover, Johnston, Gatenby.
Notes: Kelowna is without winger Carter Rigby and defenseman Mitchell Wheaton, who are both recovering from shoulder surgery. The Rockets still have four overagers, so defenseman MacKenzie Johnston is the odd-man out tonight. Goaltender Jackson Whistle gets his first game of the season.
