NHL.com @NHL

Torrie Jung made sure the Edmonton Oil Kings departed for a tough six-game road trip on a winning note.

Jung stopped 29 shots for his first shutout in an Edmonton uniform, leading the Oil Kings to a 4-0 win over the Kootenay Ice on Tuesday night in Western Hockey League action.

Jung, acquired from Kelowna on Oct. 22 for a sixth-round pick in the 2010 draft, has two victories and a shootout loss in three games with the Oil Kings (7-9-1-1). Tuesday's shutout was the first for Edmonton since Feb. 22 of last season against Prince George.

"Obviously it's nice any time you get a shut out, it's a pretty good feeling," said Jung. "It's early on in the season and I'm sure we're going to have a lot of good battle games coming up, so it's nice to enjoy it for tonight but it's right back to business for the road trip."

Elsewhere in the WHL it was: Prince Albert 3 Calgary 2; Swift Current 4 Saskatoon 1; and Everett 7 Tri-City 6 (SO).

At Edmonton, the Oil Kings jumped ahead on a power play at 12:49 of the first period, with Tomas Vincour jamming the puck in at the side of the net behind Ice goalie Nathan Lieuwen.

After Lieuwen responded with a big save early in the second period - coming across with the glove and robbing T.J. Foster of a sure goal to the low corner - Logan Proulx put the Oil Kings up 2-0 on a partial break, going high on the blocker side at 4:52.

The Ice thought they had the deficit cut in half on a Jesse Ismond shot from the top of the circle, but the goal was waved off as Tylan Stephens ran into Jung. Late in the second, Brent Raedeke's tip-in put Edmonton up 3-0.

Foster expanded the lead to 4-0, chipping the puck just over Lieuwen's pad at 7:55 of the third.

Lieuwen stopped 27 shots for the Ice.

Raiders 3 Hitmen 2

At Prince Albert, Ryan Harrison scored 1:28 into overtime to lead the Raiders to a win over Calgary.

Justin Bernhardt and Brandon Herrod added goals for Prince Albert (10-8-0-0).

Carson McMillan and Brandon Kozun responded for Calgary (13-3-1-0).

Silvertips 7 Americans 6 (SO)

At Everett, Wash., Daniel Bartek scored the tying goal late in regulation, then Kellan Tochkin scored the only goal during the shootout as the Silvertips defeated Tri-City.

Tochkin, Ryan White, Byron Froese, Shane Harper and Graham Potuer also scored for Everett (7-6-1-0). Tyler Schmidt, Adam Hughesman, Jason Reese, Johnny Lazo, Taylor Procyshen and Brendan Shinnimin scored for Tri-City (10-3-0-1).
