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.

Mac Engel replaced Zarowny midway through the second period and stopped all 20 shots he faced the rest of the way.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
