PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - Zane Jones scored twice and Chris Driedger made 30 saves Tuesday as the Calgary Hitmen shut out the Prince George Cougars 5-0 in the Western Hockey League.

Brady Brassart, Jaynen Rissling and Jake Virtanen had the other goals for Calgary (7-1-2).

Brooks Macek added four assists to extend his point scoring streak to 10 games tying a career high.

The Hitmen outshot the Cougars 53-30, breaking a franchise record in the process for most shots in a single period with 27 in the second.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
