Maxwell with four points as the Hurricanes double up the Ice 4-2

CRANBROOK, B.C. - Russel Maxwell scored twice and set up two more as the Lethbridge Hurricanes defeated the host Kootenay Ice 4-2 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.

Daniel Johnston had a goal and an assist for the Hurricanes (2-2-0) while Jaimen Yakubowski added a single goal.

Jagger Dirk and Brock Montgomery scored for the Ice (1-3-0).

Ty Rimmer made 16 saves for the victory as Wyatt Hoflin stopped 25 shots in a losing effort.

Lethbridge found success with its power play as they went 3-for-7 while Kootenay went 1-for-2.

The two clubs combined for 90 minutes in penalties in the third period. Maxwell and Kootenay's Erik Benoit both earned game misconducts for being part of a second fight on the same stoppage of play.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
