Tristan Jarry recorded his fourth shutout of the year and second in as many starts Friday as the Edmonton Oil Kings blanked the Lethbridge Hurricanes 4-0 in the Western Hockey League.
The 17-year-old goaltender turned aside all 23 shots he faced and improved his record to 11-4-0 with a 1.68 goals-against average and .934 save percentage in 16 games. Despite being the backup to Laurent Brossoit, Jarry now leads the WHL in shutouts and goals against, while his save percentage is second to Mac Carruth of the Portland Winterhawks.
Ty Rimmer stopped 42 shots in net for Lethbridge (21-19-6).
Edmonton went 0-for-3 with the power play, while Lethbridge failed to score on either of its chances.
