Skapski stops 31 shots as the Ice down the Chiefs

CRANBROOK, B.C. - Mackenzie Skapksi stopped 31 shots as the Kootenay Ice downed the visiting Spokane Chiefs 4-1 on Friday in Western Hockey League play.

Austin Vetterl had a goal and an assist for the Ice (25-27-2) while Luke Philp, Jon Martin and Levi Cable each scored once.

Mitch Holmberg scored the lone goal for the Chiefs (31-21-2), who have won just three of their last 11 outings.

Eric Williams picked up the loss after allowing four goals on 25 shots in 48 minutes of action. Garret Hughson replaced Williams midway through the third period and stopped all seven shots he faced in relief.

Kootenay went 0 for 1 on the power play while Spokane scored once on four chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
