Scratches: Mappin, Hayer, Harrison, Foulk, MacDonald.
Notes: Everett begins the season without two of its three alternate captains as winger Ryan Harrison (four games remaining) and center Manraj Hayer (one game remaining) both are serving suspensions incurred during the playoffs last season. Center Ty Mappin is scratched with what was described as a minor nagging injury. WHL debuts for forwards Stathis Soumelidis, Dawson Leedahl and Tyler Sandhu, as well as defensemen Ben Betker and Mirco Mueller.
Scratches: Lishchynsky, Bolduc, Roulston, Grewal.
Notes: Prince George begins the season at full strength. Seventeen-year-old Brett Zarowny makes his WHL debut in goal.
