Todd Fiddler scores twice in Spokane Chiefs 6-1 rout of Prince George Cougars

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - Todd Fiddler scored twice, including a short-handed goal, as the Spokane Chiefs handled the Prince George Cougars 6-1 on Tuesday in Western Hockey League play.

Mitch Holmberg had a goal and two assists for Spokane (9-3-0), while Tyler King, Collin Valcourt and Dylan Walchuk rounded out the scoring. Eric Williams earned the win with 24 saves.

Troy Bourke was the lone scorer for Prince George (5-7-1). Mac Engel stopped 17 shots for the Cougars.

The Chiefs went 1-for-2 on the power play, while Prince George was 1-for-4.

Bourke's first period power-play goal gave the Cougars the lead 12:19 into the first period.

Spokane then reeled off six unanswered goals, including five in the third period, to rout Prince George.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
