EDMONTON - Laurent Brossoit stopped 23 shots as the Edmonton Oil Kings blanked the visiting Swift Current Broncos 3-0 on Friday in Western Hockey League play.

Curtis Lazar scored twice for the Oil Kings (37-11-5), who extended their win streak to seven games, and David Musil had the other.

Henrik Samuelsson and Dylan Wruck each chipped in with two assists for Edmonton.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
