Ernst earns second shutout of season as Blazers throttle Chiefs in Spokane

Blazers steamroll Chiefs 6-0

Daylan Kuefler scored two goals and Logan Stankoven managed three points as the Kamloops Blazers skated to a 6-0 win Saturday over the Chiefs in Spokane.

Dylan Ernst was perfect on 25 Spokane shots to earn his second shutout of the season.

After a scoreless first period, the Blazers exploded for three goals in less than three minutes midway through the second. Goal scorers were Kuefler (2), Nick McCarry, Dylan Sydor, Caedan Bankier and Logan Stankoven.

The win moves the Blazers to 22-10-1-0 on the season, still good for first place in the WHL’s B.C. Division — five points up on the second-place Kelowna Rockets (18-10-2-3).

The Blue and Orange will head south to Portland to take on the Winterhawks on Sunday, a make-up game that was postponed on Wednesday while the Blazers’ team activities were paused due to COVID-19.

The team’s next home game at Sandman Centre is slated for Jan. 22 against the Prince George Cougars (15-17-1-1).
