Chiefs Pick up Point But Drop Game in Shootout Loss to Americans

January 20, 2019 - Western Hockey League (WHL) - Spokane Chiefs News Release

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Chiefs picked up one point but came out on the losing end of a hard-fought contest Saturday night as the Tri-City Americans needed a shootout to secure the victory.

The Chiefs dominated the shots on net throughout the first two periods, leading 30-to-15 headed into the second intermission with the score still tied at 0-0. Spokane was unable to capitalize on any of their six power play opportunities in the game, but managed to get on the board at 5:04 into the third period when Jaret Anderson-Dolan checked in with the game's first score. The Americans answered minutes later with a goal by Parker AuCoin to tie things up with a power play goal at 8:06 that eventually forced overtime. Box Score

Anderson-Dolan also secured Spokane's only successful shootout, but Tri-City's Sasha Mutala--the Americans' fifth shooter--converted the game-winner to give the Americans the 2-1 victory.

AuCoin's goal was the only score allowed by Chiefs' goaltender Reece Klassen as he finished the night 32-for-33 in the net and earned the game's second star. Beck Warm was 39-for-40 for the Americans, and was named first star. Tri-City finished the night 1-for-2 on the power play.


The Chiefs next play at home on Wednesday, January 30 when they take on the Portland Winterhawks. It will be another TicketsWest Player Magnet Giveaway Night with the first 1,000 fans through the gates able to pick up a magnet featuring a Spokane Chiefs player, courtesy of TicketsWest!
