Sylvester scores twice as the Hitmen down the Royals

CALGARY - Cody Sylvester scored a pair of power-play goals to lead the Calgary Hitmen to a 3-1 win over the Victoria Royals in Western Hockey League action on Friday.

Brady Brassart also scored for the Hitmen (38-17-4), who bounced back from a 4-3 road loss to the Spokane Chiefs on Wednesday night.

Steven Hodges scored the lone goal for the Royals (32-21-5), who are in the midst of a six game-road trip that will wrap up in Edmonton on Sunday when they face the Oil Kings.

Calgary goalie Chris Driedger stopped 31 shots to record his 29th win of the season as Coleman Vollrath made 22 saves in defeat.

Calgary went 2 for 6 on the power play while Victoria scored once on eight chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
