Skapski makes 27 saves as the Ice down the Hitmen

CRANBROOK, B.C. - Mackenzie Skapski stopped 27 shots as the Kootenay Ice defeated the visiting Calgary Hitmen 5-1 on Saturday in Western Hockey League play.

Levi Cable, Brock Montgomery and Jaedon Descheneau each had a goal and an assist for the Ice (30-29-2), who won their 12th game in a row on at home, while Jakub Prochazka and Kyle O'Connor added single goals.

Pavlo Padakin scored the lone goal for the Hitmen (40-18-4), who lost for the first time in four outings, and Mack Shields turned away 31-of-35 shots in defeat.

Kootenay went 2 for 8 on the power play while Calgary failed to score on five chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
