Jarry makes 23 saves as the Oil Kings shut out the Hurricanes

EDMONTON - Tristan Jarry recorded his fourth shutout of the year and second in as many starts as the Edmonton Oil Kings blanked the visiting Lethbridge Hurricanes 4-0 on Friday in Western Hockey League play.

The 17-year-old goaltender turned aside all 23 shots he faced and improved his season totals to 11-4-0 with a 1.68 goals-against average and .934 save percentage in 16 games played. Despite being the back up to Laurent Brossoit, Jarry now leads the league in shutouts and goals-against while his save percentage is second to Mac Carruth of the Portland Winterhawks.

Mitchell Moroz, Curtis Lazar, Trevor Cheek and Dylan Wruck had the goals for Edmonton (28-9-5), which has won four of five meetings this season with the Hurricanes.

Ty Rimmer stopped 42 shots in net for Lethbridge (21-19-6).

Moroz opened the scoring at 16:16 of the first period as he deflected a point shot from David Musil through traffic to give Edmonton the 1-0 lead.

Lazar doubled the margin just 42 seconds into the second period after burying a second rebound was left uncontrolled by Rimmer.

Cheek put the Oil Kings up 3-0 at 16:09 of the second after taking a left-wing feed from Keegan Lowe and shovelling it up over Rimmer's glove. The goal was his first since being acquired from the Vancouver Giants at the WHL trade deadline.

Wruck forced a turnover in Lethbridge's zone and sealed the game at 9:44 of the third.

Edmonton went 0 for 3 with the power play while Lethbridge failed to score on either of its chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
