SPOKANE, Wash. - Oliver Bjorkstrand scored twice and added an assist as the Portland Winterhawks crushed the host Spokane Chiefs 9-1 on Saturday in Western Hockey League play.

Kirill Vorobev was the only Winterhawk skater not to record at least one point.

Brenden Kichton scored the lone goal for the Chiefs (14-7-0), who sit three points behind Portland for first in the U.S. Division standings.

Mac Carruth made 43 saves for the win as Eric Williams allowed four goals on 12 shots before getting pulled after one period of action. Garret Hughson stopped 19-of-24 shots in the final 40 minutes.

Portland went 2-for-5 on the power play while Spokane failed to score on seven chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
