Everett vs. Kelowna lineup notes

EVERETT (37-19-3-3)

Forward lines

Leedahl-Bauml-Stadnyk

Low-Laurencelle-Scherbak

Bajkov-Fonteyne-Nikolishin

Millar-Mykitiuk-Aasman

Wegleitner

Defensive pairings

Betker-Juulsen

Skrumeda-MacDonald

Wharrie

Goaltenders

Hart

Lotz

Notes: Everett gets some much-needed help on defense as overager Ben Betker returns after serving his one-game suspension for a checking-to-the-head major penalty. However, the Tips are still without defensemen Kevin Davis and Tristen Pfeifer because of upper-body injuries, meaning the Tips have just five defensemen dressed. Winger Dawson Leedahl will return to forward after filling in on defense in Saturday’s 5-1 loss to Prince George. Carter Hart is given the start in goal.

KELOWNA (48-11-3-1)

Forward lines

Dube-Quinney-Baillie

Braid-Linaker-Southam

Goulbourne-Draisaitl-Merkley

Coughlin-Soustal

Defensive pairings

Stephens-Bowey

Stadel-Martin

Johansen-Gatenby

Goaltenders

Whistle

Herringer

Scratches: Wheaton, Wishnowski, Chartier, Kirkland, Jo. Morrissey, Ja. Morrissey.

Notes: The league’s top team has some high-profile injuries, most notably to leading goal scorer Rourke Chartier (upper body) and top-pairing defenseman Josh Morrissey (lower body). Forwards Justin Kirkland (lower body) and Tanner Wishnowski (upper body), defenseman Mitchell Wheaton (upper body) and goaltender Jake Morrissey (lower body) are also out, meaning the Rockets play a skater short.
