Wyatt Hoflin turned aside 29 shots as the Kootenay ICE dispatched the Spokane Chiefs 5-0 Saturday in Spokane.
Hoflin earned his third shutout of the 2014-15 season, while forwards Luke Philp and Jaedon Descheneau led the Kootenay attack with three points each.
ICE forward Jon Martin opened the scoring just shy of the nine-minute mark as he collected a loose puck in the slot on his backhand, beating Spokane netminder Tyson Verhelst from just outside the crease.
Philp added to the Kootenay lead 8:09 into the second period when from the right circle he unleashed a low drive that snuck through Verhelst's pads.
Descheneau put the ICE up 3-0 late in the middle frame, converting on a back-door feed from linemate Austin Vetterl.
Philp and Descheneau both added late third-period goals as Kootenay, despite being outshot 29-24 on the night, handed the Chiefs their sixth shutout loss of the season.
The ICE went 1-1 on the power play and have now capitalized on each of their last five of their last six man-advantage opportunities dating back to February 17th.
Vetterl and Kootenay captain Sam Reinhart each had two assists Saturday.
UP NEXT: the ICE embark on a four-game East Division road trip beginning Tuesday in Swift Current. Game time is 6:00 pm.
