Brossoit stops 45 shots as the Oil Kings blank the Hurricanes

LETHBRIDGE, Alta. - Laurent Brossoit stopped 45 shots as the Edmonton Oil Kings blanked the host Lethbridge Hurricanes 4-0 on Thursday in Western Hockey League play.

The 19-year-old goaltender is 6-0-0 in his last six starts and has a 1.17 goals-against average and .952 save percentage during his personal winning streak. He is now 17-4-5 on the season, which places him eighth in WHL wins.

Stephane Legault scored twice for the Oil Kings (26-8-5), who have won three games in a row, while Mitchell Moroz and Klarc Wilson had a goal and an assist each.

The two-goal performance gives Legault four goals and six points in his last three outings.

Macoy Erkamps and Adam Henry were both minus-3 for the Hurricanes (19-18-5) as Ty Rimmer turned aside 30 shots in a losing cause.

Edmonton went 0 for 2 on the power play while Lethbridge failed to score on six chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
