Everett vs. Regina lineup notes, Lotz dresses
Scratches: Zipp, Fonteyne, MacDonald, Amundrud.
Notes: The most noteworthy development for Everett is in goal. While Daniel Cotton starts his seventh straight game, Austin Lotz is deemed recovered enough from his ankle injury to serve as the back-up. Everett shuffles things up considerably up front, as Ivan Nikolishin is moved from center to left wing in order to play alongside the now-healthy Jujhar Khaira. That means Brayden Low moves back to the center position he occupied last season. Winger Logan Aasman and defenseman Noah Juulsen both rotate back into the lineup after being healthy scratches in Monday's 4-3 overtime victory over Vancouver.
Scratches: Hand, Maguire, Stephenson, Reagan.
Notes: Regina plays without its second-leading scorer, winger Chandler Stephenson. Stephenson was handed a two-game suspension by the league for his checking-to-the-head major penalty Sunday against Portland. Both of Everett's former properties, defenseman Tye Hand and winger Geordie Maguire (neither of whom ever appeared in a game for the Tips), are scratched. Hand is out with an upper-body injury.
