Everett vs. Tri-City lineup notes

Low-Laurencelle-Scherbak

Bajkov-Fonteyne-Nikolishin

Mykitiuk-Wharrie-Millar

Defensive pairings

Betker-Juulsen

MacDonald-Davis

Skrumeda-Pfeifer

Goaltenders

Lotz

Hart

Scratches: Aasman, Wegleitner

Notes: Center Matt Fonteyne (lower body) returns from a one-game absence, restoring Everett’s third line to normal. Austin Lotz returns between the pipes, meaning each of his last three starts have come against Tri-City. Winger Logan Aasman remains out because of a concussion.

TRI-CITY (25-26-0-3)

Forward lines

Nickles-Gutierrez-Topping

T. Comrie-Williams-McCue

Lukin-Sandhu-Nejezchleb

Defensive pairings

Wotherspoon-Hamonic

Purtill-Carlo

Rutledge-O’Reilly

Goaltenders

E. Comrie

Kaiser

Scratches: Hillis, Morrison, Coghlan, Cochrane, Bowles, Sarthou.

Notes: The Americans are dealt a blow as leading scorer Parker Bowles is scratched after leaving Monday’s game at Kamloops with an apparent arm injury. Tri-City is also short at the back as defensmen Tyler Morrison (undisclosed), Riley Hillis (suspension), Carter Cochrane (upper body) and Dylan Coghlan (upper body) are all out, meaning winger Braden Purtill is drafted into defensive duty. The Americans do have key center Brian Williams back after he missed last weekend’s two meetings because of a lower-body ailment. With Evan Sarthou also out, call-up Casey Kaiser serves as the emergency back-up.
