Tri-City Herald: Americans tie WHL mark with 6-4 win over Kootenay

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

The Tri-City Americans’ assault on the Western Hockey League record book continued Friday night.

Connor Rankin had three goals and two assists to lead the Americans to a 6-4 victory over the Kootenay Ice before a crowd of 5,686 at Toyota Center.

“That was a good hockey team we played,” Tri-City coach Jim Hiller said. “Two good teams playing high-level hockey. Connor’s line was on all night. We said they had to carry because they were hot early, and they did that until the end.”

It was the Americans’ 40th win of the season, giving them 40 wins in seven consecutive seasons, tying a WHL record held by Kamloops (1989-90 to 1995-96) and Regina (1979-80 to 1985-86).

The record comes just one week after Justin Feser set the WHL Iron record.
