Wednesday's WHL Roundup @NHLdotcom

Jesse Ismond scored three goals and added an assist to lift the streaking Kootenay Ice over the struggling Edmonton Oil Kings 4-2 on Wednesday afternoon in the Western Hockey League.

Max Reinhart had the other goal for the Ice (26-15-3), and also picked up an assist. Kootenay has won ten games in a row and is one victory away from tying the franchise record set from Jan. 2-29, 2005.

Cameron Maclise and Drew Nichol scored for the Oil Kings (10-24-11), who have lost eight in a row. Edmonton newcomer Mike Piluso, who came to the Oil Kings in a trade with Vancouver on Sunday, beat Nathan Lieuwen cleanly six minutes into the second but rattled his shot off the crossbar.

Elsewhere in the WHL it was: Regina 4 Brandon 2; Saskatoon 4 Calgary 1; Lethbridge 2 Swift Current 1; Spokane 4 Medicine Hat 2; Kamloops 5 Portland 4; Red Deer 2 Prince George 1; and Tri-City 2 Seattle 1 (OT).
