PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. - Hunter Shinkaruk scored twice as the Medicine Hat Tigers cruised past the Prince Albert Raiders 5-2 in Western Hockey League action Wednesday.

Elgin Pearce, Curtis Valk and Jacob Doty also scored for the Tigers (17-20-2), who scored three unanswered goals for a 3-0 lead.

Jayden Hart and Anthony Bardaro replied for Prince Albert (24-12-3).

The game came one day after both teams completed a five-player trade that included Hart going to the Raiders.

Cam Lanigan stopped 13 shots in net for Medicine Hat, while Andy Desautels made 31 saves.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
