Laurikainen earns first WHL shutout as the Broncos blank the Raiders

SWIFT CURRENT, Sask. - Eetu Laurikainen stopped 35 shots on Saturday for his first Western Hockey League shutout as the Swift Current Broncos blanked the visiting Prince Albert Raiders 3-0.

Adam Lowry had a goal and an assist for the Broncos (26-24-5), who halted a three-game winless streak, and Brett Lernout and Chance Lund each scored once.

Lernout's goal was his first of his WHL career.

Luke Siemens turned away 38-of-41 shots in a losing cause for the Raiders (31-20-5).

Swift Current went 0 for 2 on the power play while Prince Albert failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

You get the right whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
