Brett Sonne continues to tear it up in the Western Hockey League.

The league's leading point scorer padded his already impressive numbers with a natural hat trick and an assist Tuesday, as the Calgary Hitmen blanked the Everett Silvertips 4-0. Calgary's Martin Jones made 28 saves for his second shutout of the season.

Sonne, in his final game before departing to participate in Team Canada's selection camp for the World Junior Hockey Championships, scored all three of his goals in the second period, with two coming on the power play. Sonne now has 23 goals and 59 points this season for Calgary (27-5-2).

Elsewhere it was: Warriors 6, Wheat Kings 3; Oil Kings 6, Broncos 3; Chiefs 1, Bruins 0; and Blazers 4, Hurricanes 3.

At Everett, Wash., Brandon Kozun added the other goal in the third period - his 23rd of the year - with Sonne assisting on the marker.

Shayne Barrie was busy for Everett (14-12-5) stopping 40 of 44 shots.
