St. Croix has two goals and assist, Jarry makes 24 saves as Oil Kings rout Pats

REGINA - Michael St. Croix had a goal and two assists as the Edmonton Oil Kings shut out the Regina Pats 7-0 in the Western Hockey League on Thursday.

T.J. Foster and Henrik Samuelsson each had a goal and an assist and Cody Corbett added three assists for Edmonton (40-11-5).

Keegan Lowe, Dylan Wruck, Martin Gernat and Stephane Legault rounded out the scoring for the Oil Kings with one goal each.

St. Croix, a New York Ranger fourth round pick, and Samuelsson, a Phoenix first rounder, lead the team with 28 goals each.

Edmonton has won nine in a row.

Regina (19-30-6) has lost 10 of its last 11.

The Oil Kings came into the game with the best power play and penalty kill in the league and it showed. Edmonton went 4 for 7 with the extra man and shut down Regina on five power plays attempts.

Tristan Jarry made 24 stops for the shutout, his sixth of the year.

Teagan Sacher took the loss for the Pats. He let in two goals on nine shots and was replaced to start the second period by Matt Hewitt, who made 29 saves and let in three.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
