Scratches: Cox, Leedahl, Grayson, Mueller, Murray.
Notes: Everett is without defenseman Mirco Mueller, who is in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in preparation of playing in Wednesday’s Top Prospects Game. The Tips also play without overage defenseman Connor Cox because of a neck issue, so Landon Oslanski once again moves back to his natural defensive position. Forwards Dawson Leedahl (knee) and Lucas Grayson (lower body) and defenseman Ryan Murray (shoulder) remain out injured.
Scratches: Clowes, McCue, Tot, Filbrandt, Comrie.
Notes: Tri-City is without its No. 1 goalie Eric Comrie. Comrie also would have been at the Top Prospects Game, but that was scuttled because of a muscle strain in his hip. With Comrie out, the Americans called up Troy Trombley, who spent training camp an preseason with Everett, to serve as the back-up goalie. Forwards Philip Tot (uper body) and Beau McCue (undisclosed) are out injured.
