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

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
