Scratches: Pufahl, Sandhu, Low, Hayer, Adam.
Notes: Everett is still missing four players because of injury: forwards Manraj Hayer (concussion) and Tyler Sandhu (back), defensemen Matt Pufahl (ribs) and Austin Adam (lower body). Added to the scratch list is center Brayden Low, who serves the first game of a two-game suspension handed down by the league for his checking-to-the-head major penalty against Portland on Wednesday. With Micheal Zipp traded Thursday, 16-year-old Jordan Wharrie is called up again to fill out the defensive ranks. Newest acquisition Zane Jones is racing down from the border, but it’s going to be a photo finish to see if he makes it in time to play.
Scratches: Hillis, Gelinas, Topping, Bowles, Astles.
Notes: Tri-City is without defenseman Mitch Topping (upper body) and forwards Parker Bowles (lower body) and Jessey Astles (upper body) because of injury. Winger Matthew Gelinas serves the second game of his two-game suspension for a checking-to-the-head major against Vancouver on Sunday. Both of Tri-City’s trade deadline additions, defenseman Josh Thrower and winger Jackson Playfair, arrived in time for tonight’s game.
