Lowry's hat trick, Bow's shutout, leads Swift Current Broncos past Kootenay Ice

SWIFT CURRENT, Sask. - Adam Lowry scored a hat trick to reach a new career high in goals while leading the Swift Current Broncos to a 4-0 win over the visiting Kootenay Ice on Sunday in Western Hockey League action.

Lowry now has a team-high 21 goals after scoring at even strength and adding a pair of power-play goals. The Broncos' captain now has nine power-play goals and his 21 goals eclipses his previous best of 18 during the 2010-11 season.

Swift Current also had a goal from Graham Black with his 15th of the season. Coda Gordon chipped in with three assists.

Mackenzie Skapski stopped 50 shots for Kootenay (10-22-1).

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
