Scratches: Lofthouse, Harrison, Murray.
Notes: Everett has very little wiggle room with just 23 players on the roster and defenseman Ryan Murray (shoulder) and winger Ryan Harrison (knee) out injured. Sixteen-year-old winger Dawson Leedahl is elevated to a top line alongside Kohl Bauml and Reid Petryk. Daniel Cotton receives his fifth start in goal in the past six games. With Murray out Everett continues to play without a captain. Petryk and defenseman Nick Walters, who were not alternate captains to begin the season, are listed as alternates along with center Manraj Hayer.
Scratches: Tvrdon, Moar, Zalitach, Foster, Fuhr.
Notes: Goaltender Liam Liston, who hasn’t played since Nov. 1 because of a lower-body injury, is not starting but is on the bench. Key winger Marek Tvrdon was declared out for the season because of a blood-clot issue.
