Chiefs Crush Ice in WHL's First-Ever Outdoor Game

SPOKANE, Wash. – The first-ever outdoor hockey game in the Western Hockey League is in the books, and the Spokane Chiefs are back in the win column.  Powered by four goals in the first period, the Chiefs routed the Kootenay Ice on Saturday, 11-2, less than 24 hours after Kootenay snapped Spokane’s seven-game win streak in Cranbrook.

Five Chiefs tallied three or points, with Matt Marantz (1 goal, 3 assists) and Steven Kuhn (2 goals, 1 assist) leading the way.  An announced crowd of 7,075 watched the game at Avista Stadium, the home baseball park of the Spokane Indians.  The game was also televised live on SWX.
