Holmberg with three points as the Chiefs double up the Ice

SPOKANE, Wash. - Mitch Holmberg scored two goals and assisted on one more as the Spokane Chiefs doubled up the visiting Kootenay Ice 4-2 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.

Brenden Kichton had a goal and two assists for the Chiefs (28-14-1) while Dylan Walchuk added a single goal.

Luke Philp and Jaedon Descheneau scored for the Ice (17-25-1), who had their seven-game win streak halted.

Eric Williams made 25 saves for the win as Mackenzie Skapski turned aside 31 shots in a losing cause.

Only three minor penalties were handed out all game. Spokane went 1 for 1 on the power play while Kootenay failed to earn any chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
