Mackenzie Skapski earns first WHL shutout in Ice's 1-0 win over Oil Kings

CRANBROOK, B.C. - Kootenay Ice goalie Mackenzie Skapski made 25 saves for his first career shutout in a 1-0 win over the Edmonton Oil Kings in Western Hockey League action on Sunday night.

Collin Shirley scored the only goal of the game for Kootenay (3-5-0) late in the second period. He put a wristshot high on Tristan Jarry's stick side for the eventual winner.

Jarry stopped 21 shots for Edmonton (5-3-1-1).

The win ended the Ice's 11-game losing streak against the Oil Kings.

Kootenay went 0-for-8 on the power play including a two-man advantage for 33 seconds in the second period. Edmonton was 0-for-3.

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.
