Brock Montgomery's hat trick leads Kootenay Ice to 4-0 win over Calgary Hitmen

CALGARY - Brock Montgomery had a hat trick and Mackenzie Skapski stopped all 17 shots he faced as the Kootenay Ice shut out the Calgary Hitmen 4-0 in Western Hockey League action Monday.

Zach McPhee had a goal and an assist for the Ice (5-12-1), which snapped an eight-game losing streak. Sam Reinhart and Jaedon Descheneau chipped in with two assists each.

With the setback, the Hitmen (13-5-3) saw their winning streak end at five games.

The Ice scored twice on eight chances with the man advantage, while the Hitmen went 0 for 6 on the power play.

Rookie Hitmen netminder Mack Shields made 27 saves in a losing cause.

Montgomery opened the scoring just 21 seconds into the first period and then added a power-play goal at 13:20.

Montgomery then scored on a two-man advantage in the third period before McPhee rounded out the scoring with an empty-net goal.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
