Ice put chill on Spokane

Sam Reinhart, one of the top 17-year-old prospects in the Western Hockey League, had two goals and one assist Saturday night as the Kootenay Ice had their top offensive showing of the year in a 7-3 win over the Spokane Chiefs at the Arena. Read story

Reinhart is just one of several young players on Kootenay's roster.

“Coming into this year we knew we were going to be a young team and that there was going to be a bit of a learning curve,” Reinhart said. “Consistency is a big thing in this league and we've really tried to harp on that.”

Klemm was struggling for answers after Spokane allowed its second-highest total of goals in one game this season. Spokane has also lost four of its last six games.

“When things don't go your way, you have to find a way to get back on track and right now we're having a tough time with that,” Klemm said.

Klemm wasn't buying in to the theory that the Chiefs grew a bit rusty during their holiday break.

“That's an excuse you can't use,” he said. “Every team's in the same position. Every team had time off as well.”
