WHL Roundup: A look at Sunday's games

The Calgary Hitmen got their offence from an unlikely source on Sunday.

Greg Chase scored two goals to lead Calgary to a 4-1 win against the visiting Kootenay Ice in Western Hockey League play.

The 17-year-old centre, who came into the game with just one goal in his last 19 contests, scored twice on the power play for his first multi-goal performance of his WHL career. Chase now has five goals on the season, which puts him one away from tying his career-high that he set in 2011-12.

Alex Roach had a goal and an assist for the Hitmen (18-6-3), while Pavlo Padakin also scored. Brooks Macek and Brady Brassart had two assists each.

Brock Montgomery scored the lone goal for the Ice (8-17-1), who have lost two straight and five of their past seven.

Chris Driedger made 18 saves to record his 15th win of the season, while Mackenzie Skapski stopped 25-of-29 shots in a losing cause.

The Hitmen went 2-for-3 on the power play. The Ice scored once on eight chances with the man advantage.

Elsewhere in the WHL, it was: Edmonton 4, Lethbridge 3; Prince Albert 8, Regina 2; Medicine Hat 2 Brandon 1 (SO); and Seattle 3, Kamloops 1.

At Calgary, Padakin's goal at 13:27 of the first period prompted the 16,912 fans in attendance at the Scotiabank Saddledome to litter the ice with 21,453 stuffed toys as part of the 18th annual Petro-Canada Teddy Bear Toss.

Roach followed up Padakin's first-period goal by scoring two minutes into the second to give the Hitmen a 2-0 lead.

Montgomery scored at 15:26 of the second for Kootenay before Chase recorded a pair of power-play goals for the Hitmen in the third.

Oil Kings 4, Hurricanes 3

At Edmonton, Curtis Lazar scored twice, including the winner on the power play, and set up one more as the Oil Kings (18-5-5) edged Lethbridge (14-14-4).

Raiders 8, Pats 2

At Regina, Josh Morrissey had two goals and an assist as Prince Albert (20-8-2) hammered the Pats (11-15-4).

Tigers 2, Wheat Kings 1 (SO)

At Medicine Hat, Alta., Hunter Shinkaruk and Curtis Valk scored in the shootout as the Tigers (13-16-2) got past Brandon (10-17-2).

Thunderbirds 3, Blazers 1

At Kent, Wash., Roberts Lipsbergs scored twice as (14-13-1) downed Kamloops (21-7-3).

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
