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

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
