Moose Jaw, SK – The Lethbridge Hurricanes ended a four-game Saskatchewan road trip Tuesday with a 6-0 victory in Moose Jaw against the Warriors at Mosaic Place.

The Hurricanes had a great start to the game as they jumped out to an early lead just 5:47 into the game as Alex Cotton snapped home his second goal of the season on a power play to make it 1-0 Lethbridge; D-Jay Jerome and Koletrane Wilson earned the assists on the goal. Lethbridge doubled their lead at the 15:02 mark as Jerome scored his third goal of the season to make it 2-0 ‘Canes after one period. Lethbridge held the edge in shots 10-6 in the opening frame.

Lethbridge dominated the second period as they held the edge in shots 14-7 and carried the time-on-attack in their favour. The Hurricanes added to their lead just over the midway point of the period as Jerome poked home his second goal of the game – and third point – to make it a 3-0 Lethbridge lead; Justin Hall and Noah Boyko picked up the helpers on the goal.

The Hurricanes started the third period on a five-on-three power play on penalties that carried over from the end of the second period but the ‘Canes were unable to find the net despite a Calen Addison goal-post. Lethbridge made it a 4-0 lead as Noah Boyko deked out Warriors goaltender Jackson Berry for his fourth of the season; Addison and Jett Jones earned the assists. The ‘Canes made it 5-0 when Cotton scored his second of the game with a point-shot from the right circle at the 8:51 mark; Dylan Cozens and Joe Arntsen were credited with the assists – for Arntsen, it was his first WHL point. The ‘Canes added a late power play goal as Justin Hall banged home his first of the season to make it a 6-0 final.

Lethbridge held the edge in shots 39-19 in the game while going 2/7 on the power play and 3/3 on the penalty kill.

Three stars of the game were:
1) ‘Canes – #28 Alex Cotton (2 goals)
2) ‘Canes – #16 D-Jay Jerome (2 goals, 1 assist)
3) ‘Canes – #35 Carl Tetachuk (19 save shutout)
