Scratches: Betker, Khaira, Sandhu, Hayer, Aasman, Jones.
Notes: Everett has problems as defenseman Ben Betker (undisclosed) and center Jujhar Khaira (upper body) both join the long list of players out injured. Forwards Manraj Hayer (lower body), Zane Jones (upper body), Logan Aasman (finger) and Tyler Sandhu (upper body) remain out, meaning the Tips dress two short and play without what would theoretically be four of their top six forwards. Athletic trainer Marc Paquet is earning his money these days.
Scratches: Oneschuk, Stewart, Aviani, Elynuik.
Notes: Spokane is without half its offensive dynamic duo as center Mike Aviani sits out to serve the third game of his three-game suspension for a checking-to-the-head major penalty against Kamloops on Tuesday. Forwards Liam Stewart (foot) and Blair Oneschuk (upper body) are out injured. Eric Williams, who has owned the Tips this season, gets the nod in goal as he attempts to improve to 7-0 versus Everett.
