Williams 29 saves as Chiefs shutout Ice

CRANBROOK, B.C. - Eric Williams stopped all 29 shots he faced as the Spokane Chiefs blanked the host Kootenay Ice 1-0 on Friday in Western Hockey League action.

With his second shutout of the season, the 19-year-old goaltender improved his record to 18-8-1.

Todd Fiddler scored at 18:18 of the second period for the Chiefs (24-10-1), who won for the first time in three outings.

Mackenzie Skapski stopped 24-of-25 shots in a losing cause for the Ice (10-24-1), who are now winless in four games.

Spokane went 0 for 2 on the power play while Kootenay failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
