Hometown Kid Ices 5-1 Win at Swift Current
Swift Current, SK. - The Spokane Chiefs picked up their third straight win-all of which have come on the road-on Friday night as they topped the Swift Current Broncos 5-1. The victory also gives Head Coach Manny Viveiros a win in his first appearance facing his former club after coaching the Broncos to a WHL Championship in 2018.
The Chiefs claimed the lead early on when Luke Toporowski scored his third goal of the road trip at 1:32. Former Spokane Chief Hayden Ostir answered with the Broncos' lone score of the game at 13:02, sending things into the first break netted at 1-1.
Spokane continued their season-long dominance of the second period by outscoring Swift Current 3-0 in the middle stanza, including a power play marker by Minnesota Wild prospect Adam Beckman in addition to goals by Michael King and Ty Smith.
The final period remained scoreless until the 18:38 mark when Chiefs rookie forward Reed Jacobson, a Swift Current native, fired home his fourth score of the season to put the Chiefs ahead 5-1. Box Score: SPO (5) at SC (1)
LA Kings prospect Lukas Parik got the nod between the pipes for Spokane and was 31-of-32 on the night. Isaiah DiLaura was challenged with an onslaught of shots on net, and was 49-of-54 for the night. The Chiefs were 1-for-4 on the power play and the Broncos were held 0-for-4.
Spokane returns home on Friday, February 28 for Shriners Hospital for Children (Spokane) School Night and Jersey Lunchbag Giveaway. The first 2,000 kids 12 and under will receive a Spokane Chiefs lunchbag courtesy of Shriners Hospital for Children.
