Skapski stops 25 shots as the Ice blank the Warriors

CRANBROOK, B.C. - Mackenzie Skapski stopped 25 shots as the Kootenay Ice blanked the visiting Moose Jaw Warriors 4-0 on Saturday in Western Hockey League play.

Collin Shirley and Sam Reinhart each had a goal and an assist for the Ice (26-27-2), who have won three games in a row, and Jagger Dirk and Levi Cable scored a goal apiece.

Justin Paulic turned away 25-of-29 shots in a losing cause for the Warriors (18-29-9).

Kootenay went 1 for 3 on the power play while Moose Jaw failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
