Scratches: Nikkel, Low, Grayson, MacDonald.
Notes: The main change for Everett from Friday night’s 7-1 loss to Edmonton is that Austin Lotz gets the start in goal. Winger Mitch Skapski and defenseman Austin Adam cycle back into the lineup in place of Brayden Low and Cole MacDonald, while Landon Oslanski remains on defense. Defenseman Ayrton Nikkel (finger) and winger Lucas Grayson (lower body) remain out injured.
Scratches: De Champlain, Kopeck, Pouliot.
Notes: Portland remains without defenseman Derrick Pouliot, the former first-overall pick in the bantam draft, because of a lower-body ailment. No. 1 goalie Mac Carruth gets a rare start against the Tips as Brendan Burke has typically carried the mail against Everett this season.
