Everett vs. Prince George lineup notes

EVERETT (18-7-3-1)

Forward lines

Millar-Bauml-Nikolishin

Low-Laurencelle-Stadnyk

Mykitiuk-Fonteyne-Bajkov

Leedahl-Malenica-Wegleitner

Defensive pairings

MacDonald-Davis

Skrumeda-Juulsen

Cochrane-Wharrie

Goaltenders

Lotz

Hart

Scratches: Betker, Pfeifer, Aasman, Scherbak.

Notes: More health woes for Everett as leading scorer Nikita Scherbak sits this one out because of illness. However, the Tips welcome winger Dawson Leedahl (knee) back the the lineup for the first time since Oct. 18. Winger Graham Millar (illness) also returns from a one-game absence, so at least Everett fields a full lineup, which it couldn’t do in Tuesday’s 4-3 shootout victory at Tri-City. Defensemen Ben Betker (concussion) and Tristen Pfeifer (upper body) and winger Logan Aasman (upper body) remain out injured. Everett’s lines and defensive pairings all are forced to adjust accordingly.

PRINCE GEORGE (16-15-0-0)

Forward lines

Witala-Pochiro-Erricson

Macklin-Harkins-Morrison

Braid-Bethune-Mrkonjic

McAuley-McDonald-Babych

Defensive pairings

Bear-Collins

Carvalho-McNulty

Olson-Anderson

Goaltenders

Edmonds

Grant

Scratches: Ruopp, Soltes, Hopkins, Boyd.

Notes: Prince George is fully healthy, but the Cougars are without two players for other reasons. Winger David Soltes has joined up with Slovakia for the World Junior Hockey Championships, while defenseman Sam Ruopp serves the first game of a two-game suspension for a kneeing major penalty taken in Tuesday’s 4-3 home victory over Saskatoon. Former Everett winger Jari Erricson, who missed almost all of last season because of injury, is having a good overage season with 14 goals and 13 assists in 28 games.
