Kailer Yamamoto, Jaret Anderson-Dolan power Chiefs past Kootenay

CRANBROOK, B.C. – Kailer Yamamoto and Jaret Anderson-Dolan continue to provide the punch in the Spokane Chiefs’ offense.

Yamamoto recorded a single-game, career-high five points with one goal and four assists, and Anderson-Dolan added three assists and scored his team-high 28th goal as the Chiefs toppled the Kootenay Ice 5-3 on Friday in Western Hockey League play.

Anderson-Dolan’s goal, assisted by Yamamoto and Ty Smith, came on a power play nearly 4 minutes into the third period and proved to be the winner.

Luke Toporowski added an empty-netter for the Chiefs with 1:08 left.

Spokane clinched the season series with its third win in four games against the Ice. The other three games were decided by one goal. The teams will meet for the final time on Feb. 24 at the Arena.

Spokane, which has won five of its last seven games, improved to 2-0-2 on its seven-game road trip.

The Chiefs (27-19-3-2, 59 points) moved past idle Seattle (58 points) for the top mark among Western Conference wild-card hopefuls.

Smith, a defenseman, finished with one goal and two assists.
